Aam ka panna is one of the famous refreshment drink in North India. I would say its a royal drink which I would prefer every day. Its the salty, sweet and tangy tasted drink perfect during hot hot sunny days. Its the first time I tasted when my aunt prepared when I visited her place. The taste was soo fabulous and extraordinary. Then I came to know she added a special ingredient ''Jaggery'' for sweet flavour and jaggery contains the goodness of vitamins and minerals which is very essential for our body. And adding Jaggery instead of sugar is much more healthier. Its true.
When I did at my home, I added some handful of mint leaves which doubled the taste. It just brings out the freshness flavour and is royal in taste.Here I have added both jaggery and sugar. It was because my mangoes were soo sour and to adjust its taste accordingly, I added sugar. You can add extra or less depends upon ur choice.
