Kairi means 'raw mango' in marathi language. 'Aam(mango) Panna' is a Hindi name for this drink.

The hot summer makes you long for a cool satisfying drink.

Instead of drinking some artificially flavored and sugar filled drink, try this raw mango drink.

Kairi panha that will not only quench your thirst but also make you feel cool in the hot summer. It is a great refreshing drink.

Look at the lovely inviting natural color of kairi panha in the left picture. I have added gud - jaggary.

Mangoes are available in plenty only in the summer months and the raw mango drink can be made in March and April when the raw mangoes are available.

You can make it into thick pulp and keep in the fridge and use it for a month or so.

Raw mangoes are also used to make the finger licking good mango chutney and mango rice.

After March and April, the mangoes ripen and you can make the ripe mango drinks such as mango milkshake or mango lassi

Tips and variations:

  • You may use sugar instead of jaggery. I usually prefer to use jaggery.
  • Jaggery tastes better, gives good color and is more nutritious than sugar.
  • For variation in flavor, you may add Rock salt / pepper powder or nutmeg powder/ roasted cumin(jeera) powder for extra flavor and taste. I have not added in the original kairi panha recipe. But you can sure make your variations.
  • I have seen people add green food color to aam panna but I really like the original color you get with raw mango and jaggery, so I never felt the need to use artificial color. You may try to use it if you wish.
