Kairi Panna Granita #Recipe
Kairi Panna Granita, as the name says is granita made with the much loved Indian summer drink - Kairi Panna/Panha. Granita is an Italian semi-frozen dessert made with ice, sugar and flavourings of choice. It is quite similar to sorbet. But there are some differences - one being that granita has a coarser and more crystalline texture while sorbet is very smooth.

I love Kairi Panna a lot and make them in bulk in summers. It is very cooling for the body and is a must to beat the heat. But, my DH is not a big fan of it. I know - that's strange right? Well, I don't mind, in fact, I am rather happy that I get to drink his share of Kairi Panna too. A win-win! So, it happened that I had to use up some raw mangoes and I ended up making this drink in bulk. Since I couldn't finish it all off, the idea of making granita out of it struck me. Believe me, it was an epiphany of sorts and I wondered why haven't I tried it earlier. 
Well, as the saying goes better late than never. So, I just went for it and I am so pleased with the results. All you need to do is prepare the Kairi Panna and keep it in the refrigerator. Every hour or so for the next 5 hours, prick it with a fork so that its iced form is slushy.

This Kairi Panna granita reminded me of the ice-gola we all love. But, I do think this is much better as it is homemade - no artificial colours, flavourings or preservatives.
