Raw Mango Drink

Raw Mango drink is a soothing and comforting drink during summer. It is one of the traditional recipe from olden days. My aunt used to prepare this drink and we used enjoy most of the summer days.

I have used Raw Mango, jaggery which is very good cooling agent for our body and very little spices like jeera and pepper. Adding pepper and jeera helps the drink not only the spicy taste but takes care of our health too.
