Aam Ka Panna Recipe | Raw Green Mango Drink

Aam Ka Panna,a refreshing summer juice made with raw green mangoes.This scorching summer makes me crave for juices often, I loved this idea of storing the preserve and making the juice as and when we want sure better than the store bought juice mixes / squashes with loads of preservatives. A reader requested to post aam ka panna so that urged me to try it quickly and here you go with the post :) I loved the drink for the bunch of flavours - sweet,spicy and tangy...yumm!!

Aam ka Panna Recipe

Method:

  1. Dry roast cumin seeds for few mins until nice aroma rises, then powder it, I used my hand mortar and pestle. In a mixer add sugar,salt,mint leaves,half of jeera and pepper and grind it to a fine powder.

  2. Pressure cook raw mango with enough water (just immersing level will do) until mushy, giving it 3-4 whistles. Peel off skin, take out the pulp alone and discard the seed, Add the pulp along with the sugar mint mixture and blend it to a smooth puree with no water.Now your raw mango preserve is ready.Aam ka Panna Recipe - Step2

My Notes:

  • Use a clean mixer with no moisture while blending. No need to add water while blending.
  • Some raw mangoes are fibrous, after boiling if you find fibres then strain it to get the pulp alone.
  • You can even use jaggery instead of sugar.You can use 1/4-1/3 cup as per taste. But make sure your jaggery is free from impurities else make a syrup out of it, strain and then blend it along with the raw mango pulp.
  • Transfer the preserve to a clean container and use a clear spoon evrytime if you are planning to store it. It keeps well for about 2-3 weeks, not very sure as I havent tried o store it. 
  • The orginal recipe called for 1/4 cup of mint leaves but I reduced it as I wanted the raw mango flavour more.
  • Dont miss to sprinkle pepper and jeera powder while serving which gives the extra zing.I used both freshly ground.
  • The orginal recipe called for black salt, I didnt have so used white rock salt itself.Dont miss to sprinkle pepper and jeera powder while serving which gives the extra zing.

  22. I remember how bad I used to feel before adding green drinks in my diet. I had undeniably let my health slip and my daily carbs definitely got the best of me.
