Servings: 2 Preparation time:
  • Mangos, Raw, Mango pulp Mangoes (Alphonso / Kesar) 2(-3 ripe and sweet, good quality)
  • Cardamom Powder, Cardamom Pd, Choti Elaichi, Cardamom, Cardamon, Elachi Cardamom powder ½ tsp
  • Saffron, NITU DIDI PURE SAFFRON , Kesari Powder, Kesar Saffron( a large pinch)

Instructions (Preparation Steps):

  • Wash and peel the mangoes. Cut it into chunks.
  • In a blender, blend the mango chunks into pulp together with cardamom powder.
  • Stir in the saffron.
  • Give a nice stir, pour it into individual bowl and chill it for at least half an hour.
  • Serve aamras chilled with poori.
  • Notes:
  • Wait for the right season to enjoy the aamras. Use very ripe and sweet mangoes to make this aamras. Preferably with alphonso and kesar variety. Use only pulpy variety and not fibrous ones. If you get only fibrous variety, then you have to strain the aamras before serving.

Cook's Tip:
Always warm dry spices like cumin seeds, cardamom, cloves, etc. on a griddle before powdering. They will grind faster and the powder will be finer.
To get the full flavour out of saffron, warm it slightly before crushing (you may do so in a microwave oven for ten seconds on HIGH), add one teaspoon of warm milk and stir well.
Use a steel knife instead of iron to cut brinjal, plantain, ladies-fingers and mangoes to avoid blackening
