Aam Panna Made with Green Mangoes

I simply adore fresh homemade drinks to rejuvenate myself, be it Aam-Panna, Jal-Jeera { coming soon ;-) } or  Lemonade { Shared prev. ~click here to see~ }. Because one, these are free of any preservatives and two, these are made by fresh (homegrown/garden fresh) ingredients, so can vouch for its aroma and freshness in every sip which no carbonated drinks can beat....right ?????. OK now, back to out topic for the day - Aam panna, is a very famous Indian drink known from ages for its summer cooler properties, is sure to beat this summer heat. It is made with Raw green mangoes, some fresh mint and toped with roasted cumin. This is a very simple recipe from our home and is surely going to chill you inside out.  Take a big chilled bottle at the beach with you or enjoy it after a rigorous workout, as this is rich in Vitamin B1, B2 and C, it will be all yours forever.

Fresh Mango Drink...!!!

Fresh Mint and Raw Mangoes go really well together...

Ingredients:
Raw Green Mangoes: 2
Sugar: 1/4 cup
Salt: 1 tsp or to taste
Roasted Cumin Powder: 1/2 tsp

This does look so very refreshing..saw the pic on tasteologie and I just had to come by and say that! :) nice pics too..

So interesting how human body naturally reacts. I just read the content while looking at your pictures and my mouth totally water. Ha. Your post worked! Now I really want those glasses and drink it all. It's very exotic (if this is a nice word) to see mango and cumin powders on top. You know Japanese don't have this kind of drink, but I know I would love this. Your rustic photos are beautiful and just beyond beautiful (not sure how to describe it).

Hi Sonia, I really like the addition of cumin in this beverage--it adds a savory-spicy layer which makes the drink more refreshing!
