Aamras is the delicious pulp of the Mango fruit which is prepared with Alphonso mango variety. It is commonly prepared in mango season in Rajasthani, Marwari, Maharashtra, Gujarati homes. Usually the pulp from ripe alphonso mangoes is extracted by hand and consumed along with soft pooris. Sugar is also added to adjust the sweetness. You can also add cardamom powder or saffron strands. It is less messy to use a blender.
