Aam panna is a very refreshing drink made using Raw mangoes, fresh mint, sugar, salt and roasted cumin powder.
Peel the skin of the mangoes and cut them into cubes.
Add the chopped mangoes in a pressure cooker.
Add enough water to cover them and cook till soft. ( One whistle on high and 2 on low ).
Remove the pressure cooker from heat and let the mangoes cool down.
Transfer the mangoes in a blender along with mint leaves and blend to make smooth puree.
Add sugar, roasted cumin powder and black salt to the mango pulp and mix well.
Add 5-6 cups of water and mix well.
Chill the panna for a few hours.
Pour the panna in serving glasses.
Add some ice cubes.
Garnish with mint leaves.
Choose the raw mangoes which are tart.
You can keep the skin on before boiling the mangoes. It gives a very distinct flavour to the panna.
Peeling the skin before boiling makes the process very easy.
If the panna is not very tangy, you can add some lemon juice to it.
You can strain the panna before adding spices if you do not like bits of mangoes coming in mouth.
You can also boil mangoes in a microwave. Just keep them in a microwave safe bowl and add 1 cup of water in the bowl. Micro on high for 10 minutes.
