Sweet and Sour Green Mango Drink
Serves 4

Preparation time: 1 hr. 30 mins.

2 large green mangoes
2 cups water
1 ½ teaspoons salt
¼ teaspoon red chili powder
¼ teaspoon cumin powder, roasted
See recipe page 173
2 ½ tablespoons sugar

Boil mangoes on medium heat in covered saucepan with enough water to cover them for 45 minutes or until skin gets soft.  Let cool for about 30 minutes.  Peel and scoop out pulp from skin and seeds. Grind pulp with 2 cups water in blender until smooth. Add other ingredients and blend.  Let cool and serve with ice cubes.
 TLC tip: Panna can be used as a delicious side dish with paranthas. In this case use only 1 cup of water and no ice.
