Panakam – delicious sweet drink of south India. Excellent summer cooler made with the natural ingredients that are good for health.
This remains me of my childhood memory of my mother making a huge batch of Panakam and Neermoor to distribute during the local temple festival. Still my mom continues this. My mom said that her paternal grandma( Kandhayee Patti ) used to distribute panakam , that she was following.
Those who hadn’t tasted panakam once must taste this as these natural drinks are better than the chemical drinks.
Panakam is typically an offering to the gods. This vedic drink is a favorite to Rama , Narashima , Durga , Shakti and Mariyamma .
The original recipe features jaggery , water , drops of lemon , a tang of ginger and pepper and fragrance of cardamom. Jaggery is rich in iron , potassium and magnesium . Ginger aids in digestion.
Referigerate ,shake well and have the panakam – enjoy the summer with the panakam.
