Aamras recipe with step by step pictures: The word Aamras is a combination of two words i.e. aam and ras. Aam means mangoes and ras means juice. So literally Aamras is the juice of mangoes. However, there is more to it. Aamras is flavored with cardamom and saffron. Both these ingredients beautifully compliment the flavor of mango. Also, Aamras is thicker than juice. It is smooth and lump-free. Aamras and poori are combined to make a perfect meal during the summers. However the same can also be relished as a light dessert or a side dish. In this post, you will find how to make Aamras?
Mangoes: You can use any variety of mangoes that are available. I have used badaam aam. Alphanso is my favorite to make Aamras. But the same was not available and therefore I have prepared Aamras using badaam aam. Whichever variety you use, make sure that it is not too fibrous.
Saffron and cardamom: The cardamom seeds are crushed and added to the Aamras. Saffron strands are slightly dry roasted and crushed and added to it. It intensifies the flavor of saffron.
Ice Cubes: 6-8 ice cubes were added while making Aamras. It not only makes the Aamras chilled but also sets its consistency. You can also use water or chilled water instead of ice cubes. The number of ice cubes and the quantity of water needed depends on the desired consistency and selection of mangoes. Some mangoes are too juicy, while a few are lesser juicy and may call for more liquids.
Sugar: If the sweetness of mangoes is enough as per your liking you can skip adding sugar or any sweetener. I have added granulated sugar to make the Aamras sweet enough for our liking. You can also use honey r any other sweetener of your choice.
Garnish: This is absolutely optional but I have used fresh pomegranate seeds to garnish the Aamras. You can use saffron strands, slivered almonds, and pistachios, etc. Or you can totally skip the garnishing.
