Summer is incomplete without MANGOES ,infact summer is announced by the arrival of Amiya in the vegetable market,which is used to make pickle,chutney,dal and so amny other things,but i guess the best use of Amiya is Aam Panna which is the most refreshing drink in summer apart from smoothies and shakes,prepared specially to beat the heat specially after coming back from outing in the noon,one glass of Aam Panna and all your tiredness is gone ,it cools down body temperature too.I keep stock of mint leaves and amiya in my fridge always as the temperature here in Delhi is soaring like anything...:-( Dadi used to prepare this drink during my childhood days,yesterday when i couldnt bear the heat after comin from my driving lessons i googles for the recipe
