Aam Pora shorbot Or Aam Panna

We call aam panna as aam pora shorbot in Bengali. During the summers it used to be my favorite drink. Aam panna is known for its heat resisting quality. It is a drink made from green mangoes. The light green color of the panna makes it look more attractive. 
Though I have given below the measurements to make the panna , I will recommend you to go by your taste bud and make your own measurements. The taste will vary due to the sourness of the mangoes used.

Ingredients :

1. Raw mango- 2
2. Sugar- 4 tbs
3. Jaljeera- 2 tsp
4. Salt to taste
5. Aamchur powder- 1 tbs
6. Tulsi leaf- 6 to 7
7. Roasted cumin (jeera) powder- 1 tsp

Procedure :

Peel the mangoes and cut them into small chunks. In a pan add little water and the mango pieces and cover the pan and boil it. When the mangoes will start getting soft , mash them with the help of spoon. Cook it until all the mangoes turn soft. Now remove it from the flame and let it cool down to room temperature.
After cooling , blend the mango mixture and tulsi leaves in blender until it turns smooth and pulpy. Take the blended mixture in a large bowl and add salt , sugar , all the powder (except jeera powder) and 2 cups water. Mix it well. Add sugar or salt according to your taste. Pour the aam panna in a glass and refrigerate it for an hour. While serving , sprinkle a pinch of the roasted jeera powder on top of it.

Note : Some people do not use the pulpy portion of the panna , but I love the tiny pulps floating in my shorbot. So I did not strain the panna.
