Aamras Puri Recipe | How to make Aamras Puri | Poori with Mango Pulp | Deep Fried Indian Bread with Sweet Mango Sauce

Aamras Puri Recipe, How to make Aamras Poori Summer is at its peak and all local markets in India are flooded with the best qualities of mangoes. How I miss the lovely sight of the beautiful, ripe, yellow fruits piled up high on roadside carts, nestled enticingly in straw-lined baskets at wholesale markets, or the tempting beauties staring at you from the aisles of fruit shops and supermarkets. Yes, they are everywhere, and we can’t get enough of them! So, it’s time to buy bunches of Mangoes to prepare this yummy Aamras Puri Recipe with sweet mangoes, which will definitely delight you. I know, I have already blogged Aamras and Puri as individual recipes. But then, I felt that my virtual kitchen would be incomplete without this all time favourite mango dessert combo of mine.

Every recipe brings back some good old memories and Aamras Puri Recipe is one such. The combination of Aamras with Puri is a deadly combination. Aamras goes really well with sookhi moong dal and Puri. This is one of the traditional lunch menu in Gujarat. At times, a little ghee is added to aamras, as the mango pulp is said to increase the body temperature. Ayurveda believes that ghee helps to counter this effect.

In Maharashtra, a sprinkle of fresh Cardamom (Elaichi) powder is added to the pulp for a subtle flavour before blending into a smooth puree. In Gujarat, it transforms to a complete dessert with dry ginger powder (Sonth) added with the pulp while blitzing, and then topped off with a dash of hot Ghee. And then in Rajasthan, they add a royal touch to the king of fruits by mixing in a few precious strands of Saffron (kesar) to the the pulp and then hand-churning it. If you do not like to add any flavour, keep it simple and just make plain aamras!!

Ingredients
For Aamras:
  • 3 Medium Ripe Mangoes
  • 1 Tablespoon Sugar (depending on the sweetness of mangoes)
  • ¼ Cup Milk
Optional flavours:
  • ¼ teaspoon Green Cardamom powder
  • 6-8 Saffron strands
  • ¼ teaspoon Dry ginger powder (Sonth)
For Puri:
  • 2 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
  • ¼ teaspoon Salt
  • ½ cup Water (or as required)
  • Required Oil to deep fry
Directions

  2. You can add a little milk too.
  3. Add any one of the flavours or make it plain.
  4. Pour the mango puree in a bowl and serve.
  1. Mix the flour and salt in a bowl and add water gradually.
  2. Mix well and knead to form a firm dough.
  3. Make small round balls of the dough.
  4. Roll each one about 3 - 4 inches in diameter, dusting some flour.
  5. Deep fry these rolled puris in hot oil till they puff up and turn golden brown.

 

My Notes:

  1. The quantity of the sugar used to prepare aamras largely depends on the sweetness of the mangoes.
  2. Preferably Alphonso Mangoes would be good to make Aamras.
  3. You can add little milk or water to dilute the aamras but make sure not to thin out too much that it becomes a drink.
  4. Mango Pulp can be refrigerated in an air tight container for about a week. You can also freeze it in serving portions and enjoy them any time of the year.
  5. You can also add a teaspoon of sugar when making dough for puri as it will give nice golden brown colour the poori when deep frying.
  6. Roll the puris of medium thickness. If it is too thin like roti then it will not puff up while frying.
  7. Oil level in pan should be good to submerge poori and give it space to rise.
  8. Ensure that the oil is neither too hot nor cold. if hot, the puris get browned quickly. If it is not enough hot, then the puris absorb more oil.
