Aamras Recipe | Easy Mango Desserts

Print Friendly and PDF
aamras
Aamras needs no introduction. It is popular in the states of Gujarat, Maharasthra and Rajasthan and is prepared during festivals and occasions.Aamras is nothing but sweetened and flavored thick Mango pulp and usually served along with Puris or Chapati. It can be separately served as a desert too.It is almost mandatory at our place to prepare the combo of Poori - Aamras at least once during the mango season. I though prepare it quite often and enjoy it as a dessert or eat it with chapati instead of poori , as we do not prefer eating oily food quite often. Another best way to serve Aamras is to serve it with Vanilla ice cream or whipped Cream-it makes an easy and light dessert during Summers.

Aamras is the best way to have mango in its pure form , in my view. Using a good quality mango is a key for making good Aamras. Mango varieties like Alphonso and Kesar suit best for Aamras.One can choose between the two or mix both for a better taste.
In Karnataka, we prepare Seekarane which is a version similar to Aamras but uses more milk in the preparation.I have already posted the recipe of Seekarane,you can check it here.

Aamras Recipe:
Serves 2 
Preparation time: 10 mins | Cooking time: nil | Total time:10 mins
Recipe Cuisine: Indian | Recipe Category: Desserts

Ingredients:
2 ripen Alphonso Mangoes(or kesar or a mix of both)
3-4 tbsp Sugar
2-3 tbsp Milk (optional)
1/4 tsp Cardamom powder

Method:
  • Wash and peel the skin of mangoes and cut into pieces.
  • In a blender add chopped mangoes,sugar and cardamom powder and blend to a fine puree.
  • If needed add milk and blend again to a smooth consistency.Now check the sweetness and add more sugar if needed.You can make it slightly thin or thick according to your preference,I prefer to make it very thick.
  • Refrigerate it for 1-2 hrs before serving.
Serve it with hot Puris or Chapati or as a dessert after your meal.Serve Aamras with  vanilla ice cream,it tastes very nice.

Notes:
  1. I usually prefer to use alphonsos for it,but you can even use kesar or a mix of alphonso and kesar.
  2. The addition of sugar depends on the sweetness of mangoes,so add accordingly.
  3. The addition of milk eases the process of blending into a smooth puree.But make sure you do not add more milk as it will make the consistency thinner like milkshake.
  4. You can even add saffron while blending the mangoes.
  5. If you like dry fruits,you can add roasted cashew nuts,badam and pistachios to it and mix.
  6. You can also mash the mango pulp with hands and avoid the process of blending but the resultant puree would not be smooth.
  7. Sugar can be substituted with Jaggery in the recipe.
  8. Another best way to serve Aamras is to serve it with Vanilla ice cream or whipped Cream,it makes an easy and light dessert during Summers.

Looks fantastic. Always reminds me of this incident. A long long time ago a Rajasthani family lived in the floor above us and on one of my visits there tasted this absolutely delicious side dish with chapathis.

No matter how hard I tried could not explain it to my mom.

Nice post. How tasty the Aamras is seems to depend on the quality of mango you use. Thanks for posting.

It has been suggested to peel skin and using cut pieces in blender.

It is better to squeeze the mango after washing till it become soft uniformly.

Remove top pin of the mango and squeeze to extract pulp first and than let skin break to extrude hard seed (Gotali). Reverse the skin and clean the pulp thoroughly..
