Aamras is one of the most desired dessert at North Indian Homes this mango season. Lightly chilled aamras and hot fluffy pooris are match made in heaven. Alphonso variety mangoes are the much preferred to make this dish. These mangoes are naturally sweet and addition of sugar is not a necessity. If its bit sour powdered jaggery / brown sugar / honey couple of tablespoons would help maintain the sweetness.
Organically ripen mangoes are widely available in super markets its is safe to buy them though they are slightly on a higher price.

2 large - Mangoes
1/4 cup - Brown Sugar / Jaggery powdered
1/4 cup - Milk / Water
1/2 tsp - Cardamom powder
1/3 tsp - Saffron strands

Peel the skin of the mangoes and puree the pulp with brown sugar / jaggery and milk / water until smooth in a blender.
Transfer to a bowl add cardamom powder, saffron strands give a good mix and refrigerate for half hour.
Serve with hot poori / chappathi of your choice with chilled aamras.


  1. Never taken it as a side dish to puri but appears to be a delicious option. Should we add powdered jaggery if mangoes are already sweet?Will it not make it cloying sweet?

  2. I would eat the aamras just as is... So delicious... beautiful clicks too...
