Aam Panna

 

Aren’t there drinks that you may like personally but none of your family enjoys it? And then you end up drinking the same thing over a few days to finish off the batch, but just because you love it, you really don’t mind it. πŸ™‚ That is how I would term this Aam Panna to be! After the Mohabbat Ka Sharbat, here is another North Indian drink that is for the lovers of sweet and sour combination, as a part of the 3 back-to-back Ramadan Coolers…

 

The first time I had Aam Panna was at Huma‘s place when I went to meet her for the first time around four years ago. As I looked at a drink which had an odd green color, I gave her a quizical look. She told me it is a drink made of raw mangoes and spiced with cumin. I really didn’t want to drink it. Somehow, I never used to like the combination of sweet and sour. After the initial hesitation, I took a sip. I was at her home for the first time and I didn’t want to disappoint the host. Please don’t giggle when I tell you what happened next. I finished the glass and asked for a second serving. It was SO good! I couldn’t believe that raw mango could yield something so delicious! Thank you Huma for getting me hooked onto it… πŸ™‚

 

Each time I make Aam Panna, I am the one who drinks it all! I pour it into a pitcher and leave it in the fridge, and then have a glassful whenever I feel like, till I finish it. None of the folks like it, and actually, I don’t care. At least something that I don’t need to share… πŸ˜‰ Off to the recipe…
