  4. Hi,
    Your recipies are awesome.They really help beginners like me!I’m going to try this as its one of my favs.Plse keep adding more!Just wanted to know if I have to make the Panna in larger quantities can I just double all the ingredients as mentioned here?

    1. Hi Anuradha,

      You could double all the ingredients provided that you have a pressure cooker that is big enough to safely fit all the additional water. If not, you can just double the mango and increase the water just a bit. You can later thin it down with additional water.
