Aamras is a very famous dish in Gujarat and Maharashtra for which ripe, juicy Mangoes are pureed with freshly ground cardamom and a little sugar. It can be had as an accompaniment with any Indian meal but it is most enjoyed chilled with hot, puffed poories. Aamras is almost a daily fare in my kitchen during summer and we enjoy it with almost anything on the plate. There are two ways in which I make my Aamras. One is where the mango pulp is pureed using a blender along with little sugar and cardamom powder to make a smooth paste and the other version is called Lacchedar Aamras where mango pulp is crushed using hands and lots of milk is added to it. The latter is more liked by my family members. I will be sharing that version soon on the blog.For today, I have shared how to make Aamras by using the blender method.
Mangoes are good for our health as they contain vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. They are full of vitamin A, vitamin C. Plus, mangoes are full of dietary fiber which cleans our digestive tract. I am surely eating more Aamras this season!
