The recipe to make this summer cooler is quite similar to Aam panna which I have shared earlier on the blog.

Summers here in India is mostly associated with Mango. But for me, I always look forward to this purple fruit.

When I decided to give Jamun recipe a special place on my blog, I thought to begin with the best and easy recipe of Panna along with Tarbooj panna, Sattu namkeen sharbatHomemade Mango fruity and Jal jeera to beat the summer heat

Ready in minutes, loaded with awesome flavors of roasted cumin powder, mint and pink salt this summer cooler is so refreshing and ideal to keep the summer heat at bay in a delicious way.

 

Jamun Panna | Indian Java Plum Summer Drink, what is it?

Jamun is a small sized fruit/berry with a dark purple skin with pinkish white flesh. It evokes childhood memories of Summer afternoons for me and many who are reading this.

 

 

Jamun (Indian Java plum) placed in bowl

 

It is known by various names. We in Sindhi language call it kara jammu, which translates to black jamun.

It’s also known as java plum, fresh blackberry, black plum, jambul,  jambus, kala jamun etc.

Like any other fruit, this fresh kala jamun is best enjoyed eating it just like that. Or sprinkle some black salt over it and just shake it vigorously before having it.

The meaty flesh along with chatpata black salt will create music in your mouth with sweet and tangy flavors.

Since we are making panna, for that jamun is cooked in water along with sugar. After that, seed is removed and it’s blended along with mint, roasted cumin powder and seasoned with pink salt.

Before serving, sieve the blended ingredients and add some chilled water.

    When we had the jamun season two months ago I really enjoyed the jamun panna. It is amazingly delicious and the best part is that is does not require too much sugar like aam panna. Can’t wait for the season again so that we can enjoy the fruit and the drink.

    1. Lata Lala

      Mayuri I always add jaggery while making aam panna. You can substitute sugar with choice of sweetners you wish to add.
      Do try this panna it’s amazing. Thank you for writing in.
