Aam Panna

Last Updated on

Aam Panna is an Indian drink
renowned for its heat resistant properties. It is made from green mangoes and
it is used as a tasty and healthy beverage to fight against the intense Indian
summer heat. Apart from being tasty this drink also looks good due to its
refreshing light green colour. For the
upcoming summer, I prepare very tasty and heats resistant drink i.e. Aam Panna.

Green Mango is a rich source of pectin, which
gradually diminishes after the formation of the stone. Unripe mango is
sour in taste because of the presence of oxalic, citric and malic acids.
Aam panna which is prepared using raw mangoes,
sugar and an assortment of spices is an effective remedy for heat exhaustion
and heat stroke. It also quenches thirst and prevents the excessive loss
of sodium chloride and iron during summer due to excessive
sweating. You can prepare aam panna as syrup for some days for this, you have
to prepare in thick consistency. Don’t add more water during cooking and adding
flavors and lemon juice. Add lemon juice and water during when you will serve. Otherwise
combine all ingredients together and serve chilled with ice-cubes and lemon
This drink is mainly consumed in the Northern part
of the India and is considered beneficial in the treatment of gastro-intestinal disorders.
This drink is also a good source of vitamin B1 and B2 and
contains sufficient quantity of niacin, and since it is prepared from raw
mangoes it is an excellent source of vitamin C also.
