  • Method – 2 :Alternatively,u can burn the mangoes over direct flame till it turns like a charcoal.Cook in medium flame and turn it every now and then.Remove when the mango is cooked completely.Discard the burnt skin and take out the pulp.Keep it ready.U can follow this method if u want smoky flavor in the drink.I followed First method as we don’t like smoky flavor in our food.
  • After taking the pulp from the mangoes,measure it in a cup.Take grated jaggery that is twice the measure of mango pulp.In my case,i got 1/2 cup(heaped) of pulp.So i used 1 cup (heaped) of grated jaggery.

I have always loved having Aam Panna. The onset of summer reminds me the tingling flavour of Panna. My mother makes this using cardamom and jaggery only.
But your inclusion of spices makes it seem interesting. I am going to try this for sure. Just a small doubt...for how long can this be stored in the fridge?

If the jaggery contains impurities what should be the ratio and consistency of jaggery syrup

Chitra said...

Hi, you can use the same ratio as mentioned. But melt the jaggery with little water, strain it and then mix with mango pulp.
