Summer for most of us is all about mangoes. In fact, it is one seasonal produce that makes summer bearable for all. Rightly referred to as the 'king of fruits', mangoes have different delicious varieties that widely grow across India. And we love making the most of it before the season ends. Be it raw or ripe, mangoes are consumed in a number of ways. Take raw mangoes for instance. We love having this tangy goodness as is with some salt and red chilli powder sprinkled on the top. Then we make yummy aam panna, aam chutney and even raw mango dal with it. In fact, many of us also add it to our everyday sabzis. Mangoes give us room to experiment. We recently came across one such delicious experiment that left a strong impression on our palate - hence, we thought of sharing it with you.
This dish (in fact, drink) is referred to as raw mango fizz. As the name suggests this drink is fizzy in nature, with the tang of raw mango and some desi flavours added to it. We felt this drink is a unique take on the classic aam panna. The raw mango fizz recipe is shared by celebrity chef Sanjeev Kapoor and needs just a few minutes to prepare. Take a look.
