Aam Panna

Come, Summer, every Maharashtrian household gets ready to beat the heat with a traditional and natural coolant drink, Aam Panna. Since a variety of mangoes are native to Maharashtra, a number of traditional recipes are prepared from them, ranging from pickles, chutneys, as a seasoning in many dals, sabjis, cooling drinks etc. Aam Panna is made using any variant of raw mango and the sweetening agent used can either be jaggery or sugar. It is mildly flavored with cardamom. Additional flavors that are added range from black pepper, black salt, powdered cinnamon, nutmeg, roasted jeera powder etc. The ratio of the raw mango and jaggery/ sugar depends on the sourness of the mangoes. Hence it is adjusted accordingly with the sweetening agent being increased if the mangoes are too sour though the basic ratio is 1:1.
