Aamras or Mango Puree is a favourite with Indians. The best Aamras is from the Ratnagiri Alphonso Mango. Fragrant and sweet, it is a class apart! Here Mango is deskinned, chopped and run through a sieve to get thick pulp. Powdered sugar is added as per requirement. A mix of two varieties of mangoes is also preferred by some. Aamras is enjoyed with Poori or used in milkshakes and smoothies.
- 12 Alphonso Mangoes
- Sugar as per taste
Deskin the mangoes. Chop them and place them in a sieve. Keep rubbing them with your fingers or with the back of a spoon. The smooth pulp runs through the sieve. Collect it in a vessel and add required amount of powdered sugar. Mix thoroughly and refrigerate.
Note: Never use the mixer or blender to puree the mangoes. The heat of the gadget ruins the taste of the mango puree.
