Love Mangoes?! I love them in any form, raw, ripe, dried….. It is known as the king of fruits for a reason.

Cultivated for over 6,000 years, the mango comes in over 50 varieties, ranging in colour from greenish, yellowish, to reddish, often tinged with purple, pink, orange-yellow, or red.

A recent study shows that an unripe mango yields as much Vitamin C as 35 apples, 18 bananas, nine lemons and three oranges.

Mango is rich in vitamin A and C, calcium, iron and 82% of magnesium, which is important for the extraction of wastes in the body.

A few health benefits of raw mangoes include:

1) Helps treat blood disorders – Raw mangoes are extremely beneficial in treating blood disorders because of their high Vitamin C content. Vitamin C increases the elasticity of the blood vessels and boosts the formation of new blood cells. It also aids the absorption of iron and prevents bleeding tendencies besides increasing body resistance against TB, anaemia, cholera and dysentery.

2) Eases indigestion and constipation – They cleanse the intestine and clear off many other infections. Raw mango contains vitamin A and Vitamin E that enhances one’s hormonal system.

3) Helps treat gastro-intestinal disorders – Unripe mangoes are a rich source of pectin, which if mixed with honey and salt, is highly beneficial in treating gastro-intestinal disorders. It is also considered as very effective medicine for diarrhea, piles, morning sickness, chronic dyspepsia, indigestion and constipation.

4) Prevents dehydration – Eating unripe mangoes with salt prevents the excessive loss of water from the body, and helps to quench thirst. In addition, it also protects one from the negative effects of very high temperature.

Drinking unripe mango juice prevents the excessive loss of sodium chloride and iron to excessive sweating.

5)Helps treat liver disorders – Unripe mangoes help in treating liver disorders because they increase the secretion of bile acids and clean the intestines of bacterial infections.

They also have more Antioxidants and Vitamin C than ripe mangoes. These antioxidant properties protect the body against cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

The refreshing Aam Porar Shorbot – Smoky Spiced Raw Mango Cooler is similar to the popular Aam Panna.

The Bengali Aam Porar Shorbot makes use of  charred/ smoked mangoes. The end result is a gorgeous tasting raw mango drink with subtle notes of smoky flavor.

A classic aam panna does not involve smoking the mangoes.

Smoking mango helps in cooling down an otherwise hot mango fruit. This makes it a more cooling drink for the body.

Summer calls for foods and drinks that cool our bodies. Raw mangoes are perfect to protect you from sun strokes and extreme heat.

Recipe Notes
  1. You can adjust the thickness of the drink to your preference. I like it thick and so added generous amounts [5 to 6 tablespoons or more] of concentrated mixture/ pulp per glass. If you like it thin take about 2 to 3 tablespoons of concentrated mixture/ pulp per glass.
  2. The recipe makes use of smoked/ charred mangoes. This lends a nice subtle smoky flavor to the drink. But if you don’t like the smoky flavor, simply boil/ steam peeled deseeded mangoes instead.
  3. The quantity of sugar and salt depends upon the sourness of the mangoes so adjust accordingly.
  4. Make sure the mangoes you use are very sour. The colour of the drink depends on the colour of the mangoes and addition of the ingredients like pudina and jeera.
  5. If you like your drink with a few chunks of mango pulp in it; do not grind the mango mixture in a blender. Instead, simply mash all the ingredients with your hands into a coarse pulp.
