Aamras & Aamras Poori (Indian Fried Bread with Mango Pulp)


When it is the season of the king of fruits ‘Aam’ (Mango), it is obvious that I will be making some dish with it. This year I tried Aamras and Aamras Poori. Both these dishes are mainly from Gujarat. Aamras is a sweet dish made with mango pulp and Aamras Poori is a type of poori (fried bread) made with mango pulp. Both of them turned out really well. Here goes the recipes …

Ingredients for Aamras:

  • Mango – 2 (Big – I have used Himsagar)
  • Sugar – According to taste
  • Cardamom Powder – ¼ tsp
  • Zafran or Kesar – Few strands
  • Chopped Pistachio – For garnishing

Ingredients for Aamras Poori:

  • All Purpose Flour – 200 gms
  • Mango Puree – ½ cup
  • Oil – 2 tsp + for deep frying
  • Salt – ¼ tsp

Steps for making Aamras:

  1. Peel and cut the mangoes into small pieces. In a blender blend mango pieces, sugar, zafran and cardamom powder. Pour into serving bowl.
  2. Put it into refrigerator for couple of hours.
  3. Garnish with chopped pistachio and serve.

Steps for making Aamras Poori:

  1. In a large mixing bowl take flour. Sprinkle salt and 2 tsp oil. Mix well.
  2. Now add mango puree and start kneading. Add a little water at a time to knead into a soft yet firm dough.
  3. Cover and leave for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes knead the dough once.
  4. Pinch a little (size of a lemon) dough and roll between your palms.
  5. Apply a little oil on the rolling board and roll with rolling pin in the shape of poori.
  6. Meanwhile heat enough oil in a kadai for deep frying the poori.
  7. Carefully slide the rolled up poori in hot oil and fry till they puffed up.
  8. Serve with Aamras or any other vegetarian dishes. I also served Gobi Korma by side.
