Raw Mango Panna or Aam Panna or Kairi Panna – it is the ultimate drink to survive summers. There are many options available. You can have Thandai, bel juice, watermelon juice, Shikanji, Mojitos but Panna is still my favorite among these. Made with raw mango it is sweet, sour, and salty. This drink will tickle all your taste buds leaving you refreshed and satisfied.
What is Aam ka Panna | Raw Mango Panna | Kairi Panna
Panna is an Indian Summer Drink made with Raw mangoes. Mango pulp is boiled and then some Flavourings and sugar is added. It is served cold. It has a very cooling effect on the body and helps against heat stroke.
when I was studying in college I used to return home after 2 or3 o clock in summer. My mother would keep a jug of Panna or Thandai ready in the fridge for me. Even now when I go to my parent’s house she prepares the Panna in the morning (now she has to prepare 2 jugs as my kids love it as much as I do) so that we can have it whenever we feel like it. I think she makes the best Panna in the world. I have used her recipe for Panna.
Aam panna is good for health
Raw mango is very high in vitamin C which increases immunity and is good for skin health. Black Salt, Roasted Cumin Powder and Mint powder all help in digestion.
What is the best time to have Aam Panna
We always have it in daytime as late at night it can cause acidity. It has raw mango and is rich in Vitamin C. My mother always served it during daytime and I have been following the same practice. But It is more of a personal choice.
