aamras recipe, aamras

what is aamras

aam means mango & ras means juice. so literally the word aamras means mango juice. basically aamras is plain mango puree or pulp. you can also call it mango nectar. aamras is a summer delight in a bowl. one recipe which i make at times during weekends in the indian summers is aamras poori.

as i mentioned before, aam ras is very popular both in gujarat and maharashtra. in fact, in both gujarati and maharashtrian weddings, i have had aamras served in the thali meal.

traditionally aamras is served with poori and this combo of aamras puri is liked by many people and is quite popular. but aamras can also be had after a meal or as a sweet dish, dessert or just about at any time. recently a reader had also mentioned that neer dosa can be served with aamras.

tips for making aam ras recipe

  • mostly, the alphonso variety of mango is used for making aam ras. though you can also make with any sweet juicy mangoes. just make sure the mangoes are not fibrous.
  • i never add any milk or water when preparing aamras as we have it with pooris or chapatis. but if you want you can thin down the consistency by adding some water or milk.
  • as a reader has mentioned below, the gujarati aamras has a bit of dry ginger powder (saunth) added to it. this helps in digestion as the aamras is also topped with a bit of ghee.
  • in the maharashtrian version, cardamom powder is added. i usually add cardamom powder and saffron. sometimes i also add chopped dry fruits.

note: the amount of jaggery or sugar depends on the sweetness of mangoes and your individual preference of sweetness. if the mangoes are tangy, then you could add some sugar and jaggery. but if the mangoes are very sweet, you need not add any sweetener.

3. take the mango pulp in a bowl. then add cardamom powder and crushed saffron strands. i added just about 2 to 3 teaspoons of sugar here and you can see the difference in the consistency. addition of sugar makes the consistency slightly thinner in the mango pulp.

  1. 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.

    • this recipe of aamras is more maharashtrian style. i know about saunth being added to aamras. thanks for all your inputs and suggestions and also informing me about matho. will try matho for sure.
