Kairi Panha - Raw Mango Summer Drink

A refreshing summer drink made from raw mangoes (Kairi) is an absolute necessity to beat Indian Summer! Sweet, tangy & refreshingly tasty!! You may prepare this Panha in advance and stock in your refrigerator to enjoy a glassful whenever you want.

Prepared by My Mother Mrs.S.D.Purandare.

Ingredients: (Serves 4)
  • 3 Kairi (Raw Mangoes)
  • 1 cup Gul (Jaggery) grated
  • 1 tsp Velichi / Ilaichi (Cardamon) seeds roughly crushed
  • Salt to taste
  • Ice cubes
  • Water
  • Pressure cook Kairi (Raw Mangoes) until 4 whistle. When they are cooled, remove the skin & separate pulp from the seed.
  • In a blender add the Kairi (Raw Mangoes) pulp, 2 cups water, gul (Jaggery) and grind to a smooth paste. Adjust the consistency of the mixture as per your preference.
  • Transfer the mixture into a Jar. Add a pinch of salt just to enhance the taste.
  • Add Velichi / Ilaichi (Cardamon) seeds which are roughly crushed and mix well.
  • Sweet tangy Kairi Panha - Raw Mango Summer Drink is ready.
  •  Refrigerate the Panha for atleast 2hours before serving.
  •  Serve chilled with ice cubes.
Note: 1) You may also use sugar instead of gul (Jaggery). But gul (Jaggery) taste far more better than sugar.

2) You may need to adjust the quantity of Jaggery depending upon how sour the raw mango is.

3) If you don't have pressure cooker then you may boil the raw mangoes in water.
