Aam Panna: This lip-smacking drink is made with, as the name suggests, mango or aam. To make this drink, one requires mango pulp, blended with cumin, jeera and mint leaves. It is a great drink to revitalise and energise yourself during sunny and humid days. Start by boiling the mangoes till they turn soft inside, and the skin gets discoloured. Cool the mangoes by keeping them on a rack and then remove skin and squeeze the pulp out. Blend the pulp with roasted and powdered cumin seeds, mint leaves, sugar, black rock salt and salt. Add 2 cups of chilled water, and serve with some ice cubes.
