Aam Panna Recipe For Summer
It is a refreshing summer cooler popular in northern and western parts of India. This recipe post shares the method of making aam panna concentrate as well as making aam panna drink. The aam panna concentrate stays good for a few months in the fridge. It is a vegan summer cooler made from unripe green mangoes. It is made when mangoes make their appearance in the hot Indian summers. Aam panna has a tangy, sweet taste with hints of cardamom, cumin & black salt. The addition of these spice powders and black salt not only brings in more flavours but also helps in the digestion. Ingredients For Cooking Mangoes 2 medium sized raw unripe mangoes or 400 grams green mangoes 2 cups water – for pressure cooking Other Ingredients 1.5 cups sugar or jaggery powder or 325 grams sugar or add as required 1 teaspoon cardamom powder 1 teaspoon roasted cumin powder ¼ teaspoon black pepper powder or crushed black pepper – optional 2 teaspoons black salt – add regular white salt, pink salt or rock salt instead For Making 3 Servings 6 to 9 tablespoons aam panna concentrate 1 litre chilled water few sprigs of mint leaves or coriander leaves – for garnish Instructions Cooking Mangoes Rinse the raw mangoes in water a couple of times. Place the mangoes in a 2-litre pressure cooker. Add 2 cups water. You can also steam the mangoes in a steamer or a pot. Pressure cook for 2 whistles on medium flame or for about 12 to 14 minutes. When pressure settles down on its own, then remove the lid. The mangoes would have become soft. The peels would have also come out when the mangoes are cooked well. Gently pour the contents of the cooker in a fine strainer. Place a bowl underneath. Do not discard the water. Use this water to make aam panna drink. Let the mangoes cool at room temperature. Place them in a bowl. After cooking the raw mangoes, the peel comes off easily. Making Aam Panna Concentrate With a sharp-edged spoon or a knife scrape and remove the cooked mango pulp directly in the bowl. Scrape from the peels also. Collect the cooked mango pulp in a bowl. Discard the peels. As a rule always add double the amount of jaggery or sugar to the mango pulp. The ratio is 1:2 for mango pulp and jaggery respectively. So before adding sugar or jaggery measure the amount of mango pulp in a measuring cup. If you get 1 cup of mango pulp, then add 2 cups of sugar. I got about ¾ cup of mango pulp and thus added 1.5 cups sugar. Now add the required amount of sugar or jaggery. Add 1 teaspoon cardamom powder, 1 teaspoon roasted cumin powder, 2 teaspoons black salt, ¼ teaspoon crushed black pepper or pepper powder. Mix very well. You could also use a blender or hand churner to blend the aam panna. The aam ka panna concentrate is ready. Pour the aam panna concentrate in a clean glass bottle or jar. Store the bottle or jar in the fridge. Making Aam Panna For making aam panna drink, add 2 to 3 tablespoons of aam panna concentrate in a glass. Add the water in which the mangoes were cooked or chilled water. You can also add water at room temperature. Stir and mix well. Serve aam panna. You can also add some ice cubes while serving. You can even garnish with some mint leaves or coriander leaves or lemon wedges. Notes Add more sugar or jaggery for a more sweet taste in aam ka panna. You can also steam the mangoes or cook these in a pan. Remember they have to become soft, so that the peel and the pulp comes out easily. Use unripe green and tart mangoes. The mangoes have to be sour (khatta in hindi). Avoid using mangoes which are fibrous. Usually, I do not remove the mango peels, but you can remove them and then cook the mangoes. The ratio for mango pulp and sugar or jaggery is is 1:2 respectively. So measure the amount of mango pulp in a measuring cup before adding sugar or jaggery. If you get 1 cup of mango pulp, then add 2 cups of sugar. Some mint leaves or coriander leaves can also be ground with the mango pulp in a mixer-grinder. Addition of any of these fresh herbs gives a different taste and flavor to aam panna.
Daeryong - Curls?
The light was starting to fade outside your windows, making you more anxious knowing that Daeryong would be here anytime for your date, you quickly moved over to the mirror in the entrance to take a final look over yourself. Your eyes started looking at your makeup, seeing that the light natural makeup that you put on would make for a great concert in the park. Allowing your eyes to drop, you saw your black buttoned up shirt, the sleeves rested right above your elbows, pulling the bottom of the shirt down, you noticed your slightly ripped lighter jeans and your cute flats that you decided would be comfy for tonight. Lastly, you looked at your hair, taking in your super curly locks, your fingers fiddled with the ends as you tried to pull it straight to see if it would look better. Finding it would look better natural, you heard the knock on the door, your heart skipped a beat and a lump instantly formed in your throat. Trotting over to the door, you quickly undid the locks and swung open the door to your boyfriend, Daeryong, standing there in a V neck ebony t shirt, bleach splattered jeans and some white high tops rounded off the outfit. “Hey cutie~” He sang with a smile pulling to one side of his more than the other. “Hey Dae~” You cooed and opened the door wider so that he could come inside for just a moment. “So I thought I would stop by a little early, I-I hope that is okay?” Daeryong rubbed the back of his neck nervously “That is perfectly fine, I was ready way too early anyways” You chuckled “We could go now and make sure that we have a good view of the band” He pointed towards the door with his thumb over his shoulder. “That is a great idea, just let me grab my phone” You trotted back to your room and slid your phone into your back pocket before he held out his hand, linking yours with his you were on the way to the concert in the park. Opening the passenger door for you, he smiled and helped you into your seat, buckling your seat belt he slid into the drivers seat and started off to the park. Occasionally, he would glance over and take a double take of your hair. Feeling his eyes on you so much made you a little uncomfortable for some reason. Arriving at the park, the two of you got out, he opened up his trunk and pulled out a blanket for the two of you to sit on together. Sliding his hand through yours, he smiled and slightly bit his bottom lip while the two of you walked a little to get the to large soccer fields that transformed into a perfect setting for an outdoor concert. “What band is playing tonight?” You questioned while the two of you walked down onto the grass fields. “It is a variation of different artists, but I am sure that you will love it” He smiled and brought you down to where everyone was starting to gather. “Where would you like to sit Daeryong?” You turned your head, knowing that he still had his idol image to keep up and he had to stay away from fans. “How about over there?” He asks, pointing over to the outskirts and the slight rise of the grass. “Perfect” You smiled as the two of you walked over there, feeling his eyes on you once more, you cleared your throat and he instantly adverted his eyes. Lifting the folded blanket from over his arm, he unfolded it and laid it on the grass. The two of you happily sat down on the blanket to look at the spot that the two of you had chosen. “This is perfect” He smiles, leaning back on his hands, his legs stretched out and crossed at the ankles while some light pre-show music started to play. “It is, and such a beautiful night for it” You smiled up at the clear skies while the sun started to make its decent. Feeling his eyes on you again, you glanced over and your feeling was correct, turning your head to face his, you looked into his eyes as he just smiled and chuckled. “What?” You giggled, just shaking his head, you watched his face turn back to yours and he bit his bottom lip. “I just… well… I didn’t know you had curly hair” He stuttered a little not knowing how you would react. “O-Oh, well I do straighten it a lot” You looked down as you didn’t know if he was happy or disappointed by your natural hair. “I like it better this way, it is different” He smiles and lifts one of his hands and brushes his fingers over your arm. “It is” You sighed, thinking that different meant bad. “This might be a weird question to ask… but… can I feel your hair?” Daeryong questioned, your head snapped up to see if he was serious. Those big brown eyes of his was smoldered and you felt yourself giving in, just nodding your head, he looked down at his hand and carefully raised it up to your hair. Seeing his hesitation, his hand slowly came down and you sat up a little taller letting his hand touch your hair. A smile curled onto his face while his hand gently slid down your curly locks. His eyes watched his hand, going over the curly strands of your hair, a smile curled onto your lips as you moved closer to him and he moved closer to you. “I’m never going to stop petting your beautiful hair” He whispers as he kisses your head and plays with your ends, twirling the curls around his fingers and then pulling them straight just to see them curl up again. “S-So you l-like my curly hair” You tilted your head to look into his eyes. “I don’t like it” He looked down at you, “I love it” He kissed your forehead while your head rested on his shoulder. The band got up on the stage and started playing their music as the sun continued to fall behind the horizon. Singing to some of the songs that you knew and Daeryong and you giggling and joking around, you couldn’t up but feel extra happy that he loved your hair and loved you just the way you were.
