Aam Panna / Raw Mango Drink

Aam panna is a drink made from green mangoes (raw ones) and is consumed as a healthy drink to fight against the summer heat. It is also believed that this can increase the resistance against anemia, cholera like diseases.
Aam panna / raw mango drink can be prepared in different ways. Here is my version showing how to make this sweet and spicy thirst quencher. Always use sour mangoes for making this drink. If it's not available, you can add some lemon juice for the sourness to balance the taste. So here is the recipe for the summer drink using raw mangoes.
