Smoky Plum Panna


June 2, 2015


An absolutely unique Panna, that is sure to blow you away! Smoky Earthy Tangy Refreshing,…with a deep rich red color.
A perfect drink for the summer, give it a try, you’ll make it again & again!!

image Method:
You need good firm plums for this recipe which are slightly on the raw and sour. Wash and place them on grill.
Roast them till there outer skin is completely charred.
Place them in foil and close foil. Allow to cool.
Once cool, remove all big pieces of charred skin. Any small pieces can be left, as they add to the smoky flavor.
Now remove all pulp from seeds by squishing each plum in your hand. Once all the pulp is removed, add sugar, kala namak, kali mirch, bhuna jeera pwdr, and some dry mint(optional). Strain Pulp, add water and crushed ice, garnish with mint and serve chilled!

PS: to get this fabulous color…make them with the early darker quality plums!! 🙂

    What is kali mirch and I know jeera powder, but “buna” jeera powder? I am a south indian and sometimes I find your ingredients list hard to follow because of the hindi words.

      Kali mirch is black pepper. Bhuna means roasted…jeera means cumin. As for the difficult to follow words….please feel free to ask whenever you get stuck…will happily translate 🙂
