Aam panna is a sweet and sour drink made with raw green mangoes. It is a very popular refreshing Indian drink, especially in the summer, and perfect to beat the heat. It is very easy to make and requires a few basic ingredients.
Green mango juice ingredients
Green mango juice requires very few ingredients. The main ingredient is green mangoes and while selecting you must ensure that they are hard on pressing. If they are soft then they will not be sour enough to give the perfect sweet and sour taste to this drink.
Some basic spices like roasted cumin seeds, black salt, salt, and some fennel seeds give it a refreshing taste. The sweetness comes by adding a sweetener. I like to make aam panna without sugar by adding blue agave sweetener as it has a low glycemic index.
