Aamras Recipe

Aaamras….. what do I say about it…. Its better not to say anything. One just has to take spoonfuls of this beautiful, gorgeous, sweet, tasty mango delicacy.

So now lets go exploring this recipe. Aam means mango and Ras means juice. Literally it means Mango Juice.

The Alphonso variety of mango is used for making aam ras. The Alphonso mangoes are thick, luscious and sweet as compared to other variety of mangoes.

This recipe is very popular both in Gujarat and Maharashtra. In fact, in both Gujarati and Maharashtrian weddings, I have had aamras served with puris.

In Gujarat, the traditional way is to serve aamras with pooris. But it can also be had after a meal as a sweet dish, dessert or just about at anytime.

My hubby had this recipe for the first time at his gujarati friend’s house. He liked it so much, that I had decided to make it for him once I get good alphonso mangoes.

Finally….. that day came. I had made aamras and kept in the refrigerator and wanted to serve to dear hubby….. chilled aamras. But hubby was hungry and wanted it immediately. I did not have time to prepare pooris with it. There was some dosa batter and I made dosas and served the aamras with dosas….. an unsual combination.

But both of us liked this combination of aamras and dosas :-)

Note: The amount of jaggery or sugar depends on the sweetness of mangoes and your individual preference of sweetness. If the mangoes are sour, you could add more sugar and jaggery. But if the mangoes are very sweet, you need not add any sweetener.

Aamras Recipe
Aaamras or Mango Juice - Traditional Gujarati Dish eaten with Pooris,
CUISINE: Gujarati
INGREDIENTS (measuring cup used, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • as many number of mangoes you want. I used 2 mangoes
  • sugar or jaggery
  • cardamom powder (optional)
  • saffron strands/kesar (optional)
  • milk (optional)
  1. Wash the alphonso mangoes. Then peel and chop them.
  2. In a blender, add the chopped mango pieces and blend.
  3. I did not use milk, cardamom powder or saffron strands as I wanted the aamras only to have the mango taste, aroma and flavor. If you are using milk, then use little milk as you do not want a mango milk shake.
  4. If you are using milk, then blend the mangoes, sugar, milk, cardamom powder together. Mix the saffron in the mango pulp.
  5. In small bowls, pour the mango pulp.
  6. Chill in the refrigerator.
  7. Serve Aamras with hot pooris.
  8. You could also serve the aamras as a dessert topped with cream.
  9. You could even add your choice of dry fruits to the aamras. If adding cashew-nuts, fry the cashew-nuts till golden brown and then mix it with the aamras.
  10. To make it more sinful….. you could top it up with grated chocolate and cream.
  11. You can also serve Aamras with vanilla ice cream. It is just heavenly to have aamras with vanilla ice cream.

    I am a gujarati and I have never had aam ras with elaichi or jaggery added, so this is a new recipe for me. Traditionally. the optional ingredients are ginger powder (soondh), salt and a tsp of ghee on the top. Aam ras can feel heavy after having a few cupfuls and therefore ginger powder helps in its digestion.

    Another variation is adding yogurt to the aam ras. This is called matho. This is useful when there are more people and less ras as the addition of yogurt increases the quantity.

    Non-traditionally, I have seen a little bit of orange juice added to the aam ras.
