Super easy to make & Super good to drink……………
Summers are in & so r those times when just glass of water is not good enough to quench ur thirst. A tangy refreshing soft drink can often make a difference.
Aam pora shorbot is a Bengali classic drink made from the pulp of raw mango. Here is my take on the Classic recipe.
Take 4 raw mangoes. Ensure that the ones u choose are neither soft nor yellowing.
Wash them & roast them on slow fire direct flames – similar to what u do for baingan bharta (‘begun pora’ in bengali).
Continue till all sides of the mango skin are blackened (charred) & the pulp is softened.
Post cooling, de-skin & de seed the mangoes. Keep the pulp aside.
Take a small bunch of mint (pudina) leaves, wash it well & separate the leaves from the stalk.
Put the pulp & the mint leaves into a blender jar. Add ½ teaspoon of salt & sugar to taste. The sugar will depend on ur taste & also the extent of sourness of the mangoes.
Pour the mixture into a glass. You may add soda / cold water / crushed ice / a combination of the above. Needless to say, for a thin refreshing drink add more water / soda. Else, u get a thick robust drink if u add less water / soda.
Njoy the cool drink & I will wait for ur feedback.
