Come the summer and the raw mango, mango season, Aam ka panna is one drink that was made without fail when I was growing up. Most times I end up making what everyone else likes, but when I bought the kairis (raw mangoes) this time I had made up my mind that I will make the panna which i missed so much. An easy to make, refreshing drink, perfect to beat the heat!
