A traditional summer cooler, Panha is a really snazzy way to fight sunstrokes. This peppy drink of raw mangoes sweetened with sugar and flavoured with aromatic spices like cardamom and saffron peps up your taste buds with its tingling, tangy taste.

Raw mangoes are by nature very cooling and when served in the form of a drink it also serves to hydrate the body. So, boost your energy and beat the heat with a glassful of chilled Panha.
