aam panna / roasted green mango drink

This refreshing aam panna  or roasted green mango drink is Bengal’s favourite way to chill down the hot tropical summer afternoons.

aam ka panna

Green mango / unripe mango : 2 medium
Sparkling water :  4 glass approx.
Roasted cumin powder : 1 tsp
Black salt (it’s very tart so adjust accordingly) : 1/2 tsp
Sugar as per taste
Ajwain / carom seeds (roasted and crushed) : 1/2 tsp
Crushed ice (optional): 1 cup
Fresh mint sprig to garnish

Method :

Roast the green / unripe mango over an open flame preferably over a gas burner or roast it in an oven till the skin gets charred.

You can also boil the mango but it will not lend a smoky flavour to the drink.

Peel off the charred skin and squeeze out the juicy and pulpy flesh from the stone.

In a juicer / blender, add the freshly squeezed mango pulp along with roasted cumin and ajwain powder, sprinkle the black salt, sugar and blend it till it become smooth.

Add the sparkling water (can use the regular water also but I prefer to make aqua base drink with mineral water) and stir well.

Pour the mango drink in a tall glass , add some crushed ice, garnish with a fresh sprig of mint and serve chilled.

Since the tangy green mangoes can absorb the range of flavours so you can really go creative with it and try with different kinds of herbs and spices.

      Welcome Updesh to Saffronstreaks ! Aam panna in kolkata is usually made by char grilling the raw mangoes over charcoal. So it has a smoky flavour to it which I loved it so much. But in homes we usually try to do that over gas burner with not much success, so better to boil it minus the smoky flavour 😀
