I had one raw mango left out of the Mango Pickle I usually make. I thought of making Aam Panna which a good coolent to beat this summer..


Raw Mango - 1 medium sized
Sugar - 3 to 4 tbsp
Roasted Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
Roasted Carom Powder (Ajwain) - 1 tsp
Black Salt (Kaala Namak) - 1 tsp
Black Pepper Powder - 1 tsp

  1. Roast the raw mango directly on gas flame till the skin turns black
  2. Allow it to cool & peel the skin & scoop out the pulp in a mixer jar
  3. Add sugar, roasted cumin powder, roasted carom powder, black salt and black pepper. Blend well
  4. Add Chilled water & adjust sugar based upon the sourness of Mango
  5. Serve Chilled
  • You can add mint leaves to add on the flavour
  • If the pulp is not being scooped, you can grate the mango once the skin is removed

Virgin Mojito

Hey.. I once went to KFC.. to order Mojito... I saw the guy making it.. it was so simple to make.. yet very tasty.. I made it the same way at home.... My Daughter loves it.. A Mojito is generally alchoholic drink with mint & lemons. A Virgin Mojito is sans alchohol.


Lemon juice - 1/2 tsp
Lemon - 1 (1/2 sliced & 1/2 wedged)
Mint Leaves - 10 to 12 (crushed)
Sprite/7up - 300 ML
Ice Cubes - 3 to 4

  1. Take a glass, add lemon juice & mint leaves (crushed)
  2. Add lemon wedges, Sprite/7up & Ice Cubes
  3. Serve with Sliced lemon
  • Make sure you crush mint leave well before adding to the glass
  • A good drink to go with Pizza or Burger
