Ways to cook mangoes for making mango panna syrup

1.Roast the mango over direct flame until the skin gets charred. Leave it to cool.Gently peel the skin and scoop out the pulp with a spoon. In this method, you will get a smoky flavor to the drink. Keep the pulp aside.

2.Pressure cook raw mangoes for 2 whistles. Leave it to cool.Remove the skin gently and take the pulp. Discard the seed.

3.Peel the skin, cut the mangoes into cubes and cook in little water with needed sugar.

In the second and third method, the smoky flavor will be missing.

Method

Blend the pulp with needed sugar.(I got 1 cup of mango pulp) Skip sugar if you have followed the third method of cooking  mangoes.This is the concentrated mix.

Add 3 cups of chilled water, roasted jeera powder, salt, ice cubes and mix well.Garnish with crushed mint leaves and serve chilled.

You can store the thick mango pulp in the refrigerator for 4-5 days and dilute it when required.

Enjoy sipping delicious, sweet and sour Mango Panna.
