Today I am sharing my most tried and tested recipes during summer. I make these all the time and they are very easy to make. You can always add new things to make the recipe better and substitute them with available ingredients as they are some of the super flexible recipes.


Aam panna


Ingredients
2 Raw mangoes (kairi)
1 small cup of sugar
1 small cup of jaggery
1 tablespoon Jeera powder(cumin powder)
Half a tablespoon Cardamom powder (Elaichi)
Pinch of  Saffron
Sea salt and black salt as per taste.


Procedure
Boil the raw mangoes until cooked. To take pulp out remove its skin and scoop out the pulp from skin and mango seed. Don’t waste any of this goodness. and smoothen it with a hand mixer or any kind of blender available.
Cook this pulp on a medium flame add sugar and jaggery, one can be substituted by other but for best flavour add both. Cooking this will increase its shelf life.
Add cumin powder, saffron, sea salt, black salt. After cooking this mixture cardamom powder for its aroma and flavour . I like this drink to be a little saltier so I add one tablespoon of sea salt and Himalayan black salt to please my taste buds.
All the spices mentioned are not necessary. Add the ones available and any spice can be skipped. We just need raw mango pulp, Sugar and salt for classic taste.
Turn off the heat after everything is dissolved and cool this concoction. This can be stored in the jar. Three tablespoon of this panna can be added to a glass of water to make Aam panna and enjoy it cold.

Pduina aam panna
All the ingredients are same just don’t add cardamom powder.
While adding all the spices add half a cup of pudina puree in it. This will add a great hint of taste and make your drink a little spicy.


Health benefits
Adding pudina will boost up the health benefits it masks bad breath and helps patients with irritable bowel syndrome(IBS).
Unlike other drinks we don’t get rid of the fibre in the drink so it’s a well-known laxative.
Different spices and vitamins in the raw mangoes help neurotransmitters in performing their functions.
raw mangoes are a great way to add antioxidants and taste both to your diet.
It has vit A,B1, B2,B6,C,niacin, and iron.
Maintains electrolyte balance, rich in nutrients, rehydrates your body.
We have replaced half amount of sugar with jaggery which has minerals and vitamins along with sweetness.
Although keep in mind anything in excess is not good for you. Aam panna has a lot of sugar and it’s a laxative so be sure you don’t overdo it.


Easiest way to make any ice cream
Remember this is a very indulgent recipe and has lot of empty calories. Meaning it adds calories without any nutritional value. We are not getting rid of any fibre from the pulp and adding fresh fruit pulp in this recipe so it is still better than store brought ice cream.


Ingredients
Any kind of  whipping cream – half litre
fresh fruit pulp – 2 cups or 250g/ substitute – any essence
3 tablespoons of sweetened condensed milk


Procedure

Take whipping cream in a big bowl. Make sure to fill it only till 20% capacity of the bowl. Whipping cream gets doubled in volume because of all the air incorporated in it and we don’t want any spilling.


Start whipping the cream with hand blender or whisk. If you are doing it with a whisk god bless your hands.
When some air is incorporated into the cream start adding the pulp or essence slowly and keep whisking. Add sugar in the pulp to make it sweet if you are skipping condensed milk.
Whip the cream until you see hard peaks forming. After this stop whipping don’t over mix it.
Add condensed milk at last and gently fold it in. this will add a rich taste to your ice cream. Fold in some freshly cut mago.
Keep this in the freezer. To make sure that your ice cream gets extra creamy keep stirring it after every hour also keep it in an airtight container and add plastic wrap over the ice cream. This stops water crystal formation.
If you don’t have any patience like me you can also eat it after an hour because we just added only cream and not whole milk so it gets to ice cream consistency fast.
Tip– keep tasting while adding pulp to make it taste better according to your taste.
