This raw mango drink called aam ka panna is the true way to celebrate Indian summers.
Indian summers are synonymous with mangoes and people across the country have numerous ways of eating this fruit. Some like to put the raw form of it in curries and lentil preparations while others like to make chutneys, jams and dips out of it. The ripe pulpy fruit makes for an excellent addition to your smoothie bowls and milkshakes too.
However, one of the best ways to enjoy it is to make a bowl of ras. Another very popular preparation is panna. It is made by boiling the raw mangoes and adding spices like ginger, fennel and cumin. It is also called baaflo in Gujarati which literally translates to boiling.
