Aam ka panna is an interesting and lip smacking Indian drink made with raw mango. Authentically it is made by roasting the mango in coal fire, but I chose the easy way to make, using these easy steps. I am now totally addicted to this drink, it turned out so so delicious. This mango season, I thought of trying this drink and kept postponing thinking how it would be, but this is absolutely my kind of drink. I am going to make it often. Vj too liked it. I guess the black salt and roasted jeera powder with black pepper does the magic in this drink.
This may not be the authentic way of making this drink, but it turns out really perfect and delicious. I think there are many variations and many ways with which this drink is made, but this is the simple and basic recipe, I saw this in a video by Chef Harpal singh. But with slightly different method. So do try and see if you haven’t tried this drink before. You are going to sure love it.

  1. Hi, looking so good. Thanks for sharing this one.

  2. How many days we can store it

  3. That's a brilliant click. Just starring at the pics only.

  4. My favorite summer drink! It is more convenient to pressure cook the mango, but the drink turns out much tastier I think when the mango is roasted on an open flame (just as we do the eggplant for bharta). I usually add fresh mint leaves while grinding - gives the panna that extra freshness.

    Nicely explained steps and pretty photos - as always.

  5. My mom used to do this for us in every summer.Its looking the same as my mom's aam panna.

    1. It is a type of salt, has some medicinal properties like it is good for heart burn and digestion. It has a distinct flavour too.

  7. For how many days can we store this? - Satya

  8. Hello Raks,

    I like your recipes a lot and try all my dishes following your recipes. One small feedback - It would be great if you could add audio to your videos. It will make it more interesting to watch. :)
