The mercury seems to be still on the rise here and the heat is becoming unbearable. A glass of Kairee Panha (unripe Mango juice) is the best thirst quencher!
Kairee panha is a quintessential Maharashtrian summer cooler made by cooking unripe,green mangoes and blending them with jaggery (or sugar). I have grown up drinking the jaggery version of this traditional juice but you may use sugar too.
The sweet tangy refresher can be flavoured with cardamom or saffron. Mint adds a peppey flavour to it but is optional.
There is hardly a recipe for Kairee panha. You can make a lorge batch of the pulp which can be stored in the refrigerator/freezer and used as required.
