Of Flavours & Tastes…
I have been thinking to post something cool for the season.So here is Aam Panna,the raw mango drink,perfect for the season in all respects.The basic recipe belongs to Tarla Dalal,which I modified a bit to my convenience.Do check this one since you might be having lots of raw mangoes sitting idle in your refrigerators I am sure.The season demands lots of liquid no ?
2 medium sized raw mangoes
1 inch piece of ginger
2 tbsp sugar (or to your taste)
pinch of black salt
1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder
few mint leaves
Wash,peel and cut the mangoes.Pressure cook the mangoes along with seeds and ginger adding little water till the mangoes are well cooked and soft.Allow it to cool and then mash it properly.Throw the seeds .If the pulp is too thick you may add more water.It all depends on the consistency you need.I love to have few small pieces of mango inside while drinking.Now,add the salt,sugar and roasted cumin powder and mix well.Arrange two large glasses with ice cubes.Pour in the mango mixture.Drop more ice cubes on top and decorate with mint leaves.
