Jamun/ Black Plum Panna


Jamun fruit also known by various names like java, jambul,  jambas etc. The fruit is sweet, sour and astringent in taste and is extremely juicy.

The fruit contains a hard seed which has many beneficial properties too. 

Jamun fruit is used for treatment in ayurvedik medicine in India and specially used in treatment of diabetes. 

It has also been reported to play a protective role in liver disease. Jamun fruit also has been known to blood purifying properties. 

It is best eaten raw with black salt or it can be used in various dishes. 

Panna is a summer drink which is usually made from raw mango.

But we can make panna with other fruits like star fruit,  pineapple,  berries and jamun.

The process requires you to boil or roast the mango but in this recipe we can not roast the jamun so first I boil the jamun and then squeeze the pulp. 

You can also get the jamun shikanji and jam recipe in my blog.
