Recipe by Naiya Sheth : Learn how to make Aam Panna. Mangoes are called king of all fruits, but here we are not talking about yummy yellow ripe mangoes. It's a recipe of raw mango. Generally, they are green in colour and sour in taste. They are highly appreciated for their nutritional value and excellent source of vitamin c. It contains more vitamin c than ripe mangoes.
