Summer is here!
Aam Panna/ Raw Mango Juice is a very popular drink in India during summer. It is a great summer cooler to beat the scorching heat. It also has a beneficial remedy in dehydration and heat stroke. I remember when I was a kid and used to come from school on a sunny afternoon, my mother used to give me this flavorful juice. This is my mom’s recipe, but I made it in an easy way.
1 large Green Raw Mango
1/3 cup Sugar (you will need more sugar if the mango is too sour, it also depends how tangy you would like it)
salt to taste
2 cups Water
2 tsp lemon juice (if the mango is not sour)
Peel the mango. De-seed and cut it into pieces.
In a pot, add water and mango pieces. Put it on the stove to boil.
Boil it for 15-20 mins, it is done when it pierces easily. Switch off the gas. Let it cool down.
Add sugar, salt, and the boiled mango pieces along with the water and blend.
If the mixture is too thick you can add 1/4 cup water. It should not be too watery.
Adjust the sugar and salt according to your taste. If it is not too tangy you can add lemon juice too. The juice should tastes sweet and tangy. 🙂
Chill before serving. Enjoy.
