Kariche Panhe

Nothing screams summer more than a chilled drink. Kariche panhe / raw mango drink is a perfect solution for a hot afternoon. This is a quick recipe and does not require lot of ingredients.

2 raw mangoes (Kairi)
3/4 cup grated jaggery
1 tea spoon cardamom powder
pinch of saffron
pinch of salt

Method :
Pressure cook the raw mangoes for 3 whistles.Remove the skin and the seed when they are warm and puree it in blender. Transfer in a bowl. Add grated jaggery when the mango puree is still warm.This allows jaggery to melt. Add cardamom,saffron and salt. Stir to mix everything together. Allow it to come to room temperature.Save this in a clean dry container in a fridge, It stays for a week.

While making the drink, Take 2-3 tablespoons of mixture into the glass.Fill the rest with water and stir. Add ice and touch of salt just before serving. You may add 1/4 tea spoon freshly squeezed lemon juice.

You may require slightly more or less jaggery depending upon the tartness of raw mango.
