AAM PANNA

 

 

The summer is at it’s peak and the mangoes are in season.That has driven me to try this long pending to try on my list Aam Panna. Last week when i went to the market i purchased a few raw mangoes.We make pickles of various types with mangoes and eat the long cut pieces.Also there are a variety of gravies and of course as we all know,we make juices and shakes too.

 

 

This is a North Indian cooler drink made with raw mangoes and is very popular there owing to it’s availability of varieties and numbers.I learnt that raw mangoes are loaded with B Vitamins and C Vitamins.The presence of C Vitamins makes it build the immune system of our body and also helps in throwing away the wastages present in our body.So in a way it detoxifies our body.Raw mango is a rich source of pectin which diminishes the formation of kidney stones.Unripe mango is sour in taste due to the presence of oxalic,citric,malice and succinic acids.But making the recipe was just an excuse.
