- 1 ½ cup of sugar or jaggery powder
- 1 teaspoon of cardamom powder
- 1 teaspoon of roasted cumin powder
- ¼ teaspoon of crushed black pepper
- 2 teaspoons of black salt
- Mint leaves, for flavor
Method to Prepare:
- First of all, rinse the raw mangoes in water and place them in a 2-liter pressure cooker and pour 2 cups of water in it.
- Pressure cook the mangoes for 2 whistles on medium heat for 12 to 15 minutes.
- When the pressure settles down, mangoes would be soft and they can be peeled easily.
- Gradually pour the content of the cooker in a strainer and put a bowl under it. Don’t discard the water as you can use it for making the Aam Panna drink later on.
- Let the mangoes cool on room temperature and peel them off.
Making Aam Panna concentrate:
- Get a sharp-edged knife scrape or spoon and remove the cooked mango pulp directly to the bowl.
- Always remember to add double the amount of jaggery or sugar to the mango pulp.
- Calculate the amount of mango pulp and add jaggery according to it.
- Stir in 1 teaspoon of cardamom powder, roasted cumin powder, 2 teaspoons of black salt, ¼ teaspoon of crushed black pepper, and mix thoroughly.
- Your Aam Panna concentrate is ready. Just pour it into a clean jar and put it inside the fridge to cool.
Making Aam Panna:
- Now, making Aam Panna is very easy. Get a glass and add 2 or 3 tablespoons of Aam Panna concentrate in it.
- Either you can use the water in which we cooked mangoes or use chilled water. Stir and mix it well.
- Add some ice cubes if you want your Aam Panna chilled and garnish it with some mint leaves and lemon wedges to get the tangy and delicious flavor.
- If you love your Aam Panna sweet than add more sugar or jaggery and make it a sweet drink!
- Make sure you use unripe green and tart mangoes as these mangoes have a sour taste and that makes this drink more delightful.
- You can even ground mint or coriander leaves with mango pulp in a mixer grinder as the addition of these herbs give this drink a punch of tanginess and a boost of flavor.
- Avoid using mangoes which are rubbery.
