Aam Panna

Aam Panna is a green mango drink widely consumed in Northern part of India during summer..Apart from being a delicious, refreshing drink aam panna is believed to have for several health benefits...Aam panna which is prepared using raw mangoes, sugar and an assortment of spices is an effective remedy for heat exhaustion and heat stroke. It also quenches thirst and prevents the excessive loss of sodium chloride and iron during summer due to excessive sweating..
Aam Panna is also considered as a curative for blood disorders because of its high vitamin C content. It increases the elasticity of the blood vessels and helps in the formation of new blood cells. This drink is also considered as a tonic which increases body resistance against tuberculosis, anemia, cholera and dysentery.Am sending this refreshing drink to Srivalli's Mango Mela and to Sadhana& Muskaan's Home Remedies Event ...



4nos Raw mangoes
1/2cup Sugar
1tbsp Salt
1tsp Roasted Cumin seeds
Few fresh mint leaves

Cut the mangoes as big pieces and pressure the mangoes with a cup of water, cook for 2 whistles and keep aside..Grind the sugar, roasted cumin seeds together and mince the mint leaves...Squeeze out the mango pulp using hands and discard the skin..Puree the mango pulp with minced mint leaves, ground sugar, roasted cumin seeds and salt...Blend well..

Store the blended spiced mango puree in a bottle and conserve in fridge...While serving add 4-5teaspoons of concentrate mango puree in a glass of water and crushed ice..give a stir and serve it..

Enjoy!!!

Looks so refreshing & yummy. I have tasted Aam Panna in my neighbour's house back in India, but have never made it home. Yours is inspiring me to make it.
