Notes

You can boil the mangoes with the skin on- wash the mangoes thoroughly and boil.Once done remove the skin and then mash the mangoes.
If you do not have a cooker, boil the mangoes in a little water (water level a little above mangoes), in a covered pan for 15-20 minutes, till mangoes are soft.
If you do not want to use sugar, you can use Jaggery instead.Add Jaggery powder, or crushed jaggery when the mango pulp is still hot and mix. Rest of the procedure remains the same.Let the mixture cool.
If you like the mango bits In your aam panna you can simple mash the boiled mango slightly. If you want a smooth drink, blend the mango pulp well with a hand blender, so that there are no mango bits left.
