Aamras is a dessert. Aam = Mango , Ras = Juice so literally aamras is mango juice. Actually this is the Mango Pulp. This dish is traditionally served along with pooris or as a dessert in a full meal in Maharashtra and Gujarat. Alphonso Mangoes are very well suited for this recipe as it has no fibre. The taste and flavour completely depends upon the type of the mangoes used. If the mangoes are sour then more sugar/Jaggery needs to be added. Hence pick ripe sweet mangoes. Here goes the recipe...
