Recipe Notes
  • It is advised to soak the mangoes in sufficient water for 1-2 hour before use, It helps to reduce the heating nature of mango.
  • Check the sweetness of mango, if require add some sugar or honey while blending it.
  • You may add soda water or normal water, both goes well with recipe.
  • Addition on fresh mint leaves gives a nice flavor to the drink.
  • This drink tastes more or less like a Aampanna.
  • Add the ice cubes as required.
  • I did not add too much Basil seeds as I wanted this drink to drinking consistency, not eating one. You may play with the quantity.
  • Instead of soaking basil seeds in normal water, soaked here in mango water to flavor the basil seeds. You may also use the pre soaked in normal water basil seeds and then add to the drink.
