Roasted aam panna recipe – A tangy thirst-quenching summer drink of raw mango and mint with indian spices.
Here is a different variation of India’s favorite summer drink “Aam panna”. Normally the aam panna is made by boiling the raw mangoes in water first and then grinding its pulp with some indian spices and sugar. That is the traditional way of prepared aam ka panna drink. As it the mangoes are boiled, this drink is also known as “baaflo” (not to be confused with buffalo :D) in Gujarati language. Also there are many variations of this drink. I have added mint leaves in this aam panna. You can also add cardamom (elaichi) if you like its taste.

Today I am sharing a recipe of aam panna where raw mango is cooked by roasting it on gas stove like we roast baingan for baingan bharta. This way the mango is cooked nicely and also it infuses the smoky flavor in drink. When you take a sip of this roasted aam panna, at first it taste exactly like normal aam panna and then at the end the smoky flavor hits you.
I have used the “totapuri mango” in making this aam panna since it is less sour than other raw mango. Due to this I have to added less sugar in this panna. If you are a bit sugar-conscious then you can even replace sugar with jaggery. Also this aam panna recipe is fresh aam panna. You should make this and serve within a day. It remains good for a day or two. However if you want to store aam panna for long time you need to make aam panna concentration which can remain fresh for upto 3 months. I will try to share its recipe soon.
This recipe is adopted from chef Harpal Singh’s recipe on youtube. I must say when I tried it first time I really liked the taste and thought to share it here.
