Roasted Kiwi Panna, is a refreshing non-alcoholic drink made using roasted kiwi fruits, fresh mint and black salt to beat the heat.  

Tandarjo Keri Thepla,

 Chaas ( yogurt drink ) and Kairi aur Pyaj ka kachumber,

While the kiwis and cumins was slow roasting on the fire, I plucked up few british mint leaves from my garden, and started preparing Kiwi Panna. I followed almost same recipe as Aam Panna, but twisted the recipe slightly, palm sugar went in instead of white sugar for a LOW GI and alternatively,  plain sparkling water I used. Frankly speaking this drink is not tick a healthy option, just because it's Fruit, because I did roast the fruit,  all the vitamin C destroyed, however...something innovative!

Kiwi Palm Panna is a crisp concoction of Kiwi fruits, Cumin, Mint and black salt. It has
sweet, tart and mildly spicy flavours, maybe we can call it Cousin of Aam Panna ! It was refreshing and lightly smoky flavours. The recipe is very simple and quick and this drink can be served as an appetizer or a welcome drink as cumin and black salt aid in digestion, or accompaniment with snacks or meals.

  5. Now place everything in the blender except roasted kiwis with a little amount of water and blend till you get almost fine paste.
  6. Now add chopped kiwis with more water and blend it again. Check for salt and sugar.
  7. Mix it properly and pour it in a tall glass.
  8. Fill up the glass with ice and top up with sparkling water or plain soda.

  1. That drink sounds so flavorful and refreshing. Very unique to me and I will love trying this one out!

  2. Just awed by the beautiful clicks, and the roasted kiwi panna recipe is just too good, thanks for the lovely share.

  3. Gorgeous shots especially the splash ones. Kept gazing at them for some time before I finally reached down to comment. Great recipe and great way to use Kiwi other than salads or just as a fruit. Pannas are the best coolants during summers and I would currently need a big jug of these to quench my thirst and cool off.

  4. Oh I couldn't take off my eyes from your pictures...lovely...I can feel how delicious the drinks have...the roasted kiwi should be an interesting innovation
