Aam Panna is an Indian summer drink that's made with green mangoes or raw mangoes. It has cooling, digestive properties and has a sweet, sour, tangy, minty flavour that's so so good on a hot summer afternoon!
Add raw mango and water to a pressure cooker. Cover the lid and pressure cook for 3 whistles on low heat. Allow the pressure to release naturally.
Remove the lid and squeeze out the pulp from the mangoes. Discard the skin and seed once all the pulp is extracted.
Add the pulp to a blender along with rock salt, jeera powder, sugar, chilli and mint leaves. Blend to a slightly coarse-textured paste and set aside. This concentrate can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 weeks
Aam Panna Beverage
Combine water and aam panna concentrate in a 1:1 ratio - for every 1 cup of concentrate, you mix 1 cup of water.
Combine well and serve as a beverage!
Aam Panna Popsicles
Using the same 1:1 ratio, combine water and aam panna concentrate. Transfer these into popsicle moulds and place in the freezer.
Freeze for 4-6 hours or until properly frozen. Remove from mould when required and serve the popsicles!
If you'd like to make this even easier, peel and cut the raw mango and then pressure cook it as described in Step 1. This way you won't have to deal with the peel or seed later
Choose sour, raw mangoes only. The riper the mango, the more different the flavour
