Honeydew Panaka

Panaka to me always refers to fruit juice which has jaggery in it.

You need the following to make honeydew panaka :

Honeydew : 2 wedges
jaggery: 1/2 cup or according to taste  (powdered)
Powdered Cardamom : 1 big pinch
Water as required

Take all ingredients in a blender and blend to make juice. Remove and serve.

hi lakshmi, when i read honeydew panaka, it didn't flash, when i was reading through i suddenly realized, hey idu karbooza alwa antha, O' yes, i love it, when summer arrives i used to make this often, and i always liked my mom than me making it..., O' it is a good relish, everything in it is so good for health, i make it the same way, and then innondu hannu baruthalla, just when ramanavami comes, it starts from B i think that fruit O' my God !!, i am not getting the name..., if u get it at ur place make that panaka and post the recipe..., even that is made in the same and tastes so good, amma always made both the panakas..., O' its really moouthwatering...,
