Summer Special: Raw Mango Cooler (Aam Panna)

Aam Panna is a popular Indian summer drink. It is a unique drink packed with various tastes into one – sour, spicy, tangy!

The drink is made with raw mangoes, mint leaves and coriander leaves. An added bonus of making this drink is that you can bring home ready made ‘puris’ / ‘puchkas’ / ‘gol gappas’ and enjoy a scrumptious plate of ‘pani puri’ at home.
