Aamras is very popular dessert in Rajasthani cuisine and Maharashtra, Gujarati homes, especially during festivals.
Summer is on its peak and our local market is already flooded with best qualities of Hapus mangoes in Bangalore. Aamras is nothing but mango juice. “Aam” means mango and “Ras” means juice, so the word aamras means mango juice.
During summer season aamras is very popular dish in gujarati and maharashtrian homes, my husband is from maharashtra so he loved aamras..
when he see the good quality of mangoes in market as compared to last year, he buy 1 kg of mangoes and said me please make an aamras for me, so I can have with my every meal.
Aamras recipe is prepared with different types of mangoes available in market.
My husband love aamras in any form, so this is my forth batch of making aamras at home :D whenever I make he start eating so can't take pictures of that so this time I make it when he is in office :P and this time I can take the pictures of aamras. But this time I made "Kesar Aamras" [flavored aamras].
If you don't want Kesar in your aamras just discard that step otherwise all recipe is same for normal aamras also.
I usually liked fresh aamras and moreover consume for another day only otherwise aamras change the color & taste, so its better to make fresh batch every time.
It will take hardly 10 to 15 minutes to prepare.
Aamras is best prepared with ripe mangoes or overripe too, if they too ripe then it is best to make aamras instead of eating slices.
