Aam panna is an Indian drink renowned for its heat-resistant properties. It is made from green mangoes and is light pale in color, and is consumed as a tasty and healthy beverage to fight against the intense Indian summer heat. I have been longing to make this refreshing drink from quiet a long time. It was a few days back when i went to my mother’s place and she handed me a basket full of raw mangoes that had fallen in a windy storm. Didn’t wanted to make pickles and all, so used few for making dal, chutney etc and kept some big ones for making Panna.
As it a great remedy of heat stroke also i decide to make the panna syrup in a large quantity so that i could store it and can use through out the summer. My son also loves to have it, so i am keeping a practice of giving him a glass of aam panna when he is back from his school or play. The sweet and tangy combination is just so amazing that each sip of it yummy and refreshing. The market/ shops in summers get flooded with variety of aerated drinks, but trust me no cool drink can refresh you as much as a home made Aam Panna can do. Make it, Drink it …Store it !!!
