Why to consume Aam Panna
Aam Panna is a very healthy drink especially on summers as it cools down the body temperature. This drink is rich in carbohydrates, vitamin A, B1, B2 and C. It is a rich source of minerals such as calcium, potassium, magnesium, sodium and iron. It also helps in fighting against diabetes or high blood sugar. I recommended using jaggery, coconut sugar, cane sugar, brown sugar as it is better than the sugar we commonly use at our homes. Instead of using white salt we can use pink Himalayan salt which very healthy and way better than the salt we use. You can also use black salt. You can also cook the mangoes in a pressure cooker.
How to serve the Aam Panna
You can serve Aam Panna normally adding 2 teaspoon of the concentrate in a glass and adding cold water and stir it. Instead of water you can soda to enhance its taste. You can also add some ice. Adding some mint leaves can give it extra punch of flavor.
