Who does not love to have sweet and sour, slightly spicy Aam Panna on a hot summer day!
Aam Panna is a roasted raw mango drink that is really popular on hot summer days across India. In Bengali, we call it Aam pora sharbat. It's really easy to make. If you have the pulp ready, you just need to add chilled water, salt, sugar, and spices and mix it and your Amm Pannais ready to drink.
First, make the raw green mango pulp:
Prep Time: 10 minutes Cooking Time: 90 minutes
Servings: 1 and 1/2 cups of Pulp
5 good size raw green mangoes
1 tablespoon oil
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.
Take 5 good size raw green mangos on a baking sheet and lightly apply the oil on them.
Then roasted them in the 450 degrees oven for 1 and half hours.
When they are fully cooked turn off the heat, and take them out from the oven and let them cool down.
Peel the skin off and take out the pulp.
Mash the pulp and keep it aside.
You will get 1 and 1/2 cups of pulp from these 5 roasted mangoes.
You may store it in the refrigerator for a week.
