Happy Shri Rama navami to all. Paanaka is a juice/beverage prepared using cantaloupe [Karbooja fruit] and Jaggery. Paanaka is prepared in South india during a festival called as 'Shri Rama Navami'. Along with Paanaka, we also prepare Butter milk and Kosambari [a salad of moong dal and cucumber]. Paanaka will be very tasty, healthy and refreshing beverage.
The detail of the recipe is described below.
Preparation time:7 min
Servings:6 glasses

Cantaloupe/Karbooja Fruit - 1/4th of the fruit
