aam ka panna recipe with step by step photos – three indian drinks i often make in the summers are shikanji, aam ka panna and kokum sherbet. they all are summer coolers and help greatly in beating the heat in the summers.

at home we avoid the unhealthy soft cola drinks in the summers and take recourse in the bountiful blessings that mother nature gives us. watermelons, coconuts, musk melons, cucumber, fresh kokum, lemons… all these are the fruits which are great summer coolers and help you a lot in tolerating the heat and heat stroke.

aam ka panna is made from raw mangoes the drink is slightly sour and sweet to taste with a hint of cardamom & black salt. the aam ka panna recipe presented here is adapted from my home science notes.

few more raw unripe mango recipes are punjabi mango pickle, green mango chutney, raw mango dal.raw mango chaat and raw mango rice recipe.


aam panna made from raw mangoes

sugar or jaggery is added to the panna as a sweetener. i avoid using white sugar in my cooking and always use organic cane sugar or golden sugar. recently i saw a pack of organic evaporated sugar cane juice in the fabindia outlet here. i had to buy it.

in the aam panna i added the evaporated sugar cane juice and it took the aam panna to a totally whole new level. it was not just the raw mango that appealed to the senses, but also a refreshing mild taste and flavor of sugar cane juice. the colors of the aam panna are also like the brown cola color due to the evaporated sugar cane juice.

i also made the aam panna with organic jaggery, cardamom and black pepper and this combo was much different. now the color changed to a golden yellow shade. i get so inspired by colors and try the same to portray in my photographs. don’t know if i do enough justice to it or not.


you can either make the aam panna with sugar or jaggery. if you do make it with sugar your aam panna will have a light creamish or pale or lemon yellow color to it.  take your pick…. which colors inspire you?
