To start with mango recipes, i chose this simple and easiest North indian dessert recipe,Aamras.Aam – Mango,Ras – juice/Pulp.As its name indicates,its just the pulp of ripe mangoes sweetened with sugar or jaggery flavoured with cardamom or saffron/Kesar or dry ginger powder.After i went through some websites,i came to know that this recipe is very popular in Gujarat,Maharashtra and Rajasthan & made during festivals.Each recipe has its own mild variations.But in general,i read they all have this aamras with poori/puri.First i felt it to be an unusual combo but after i tried, i realised its taste and loved it.It was tasting like jam with poori or roti.Kids would love this combo.Basically i love the combination of sweet & spice.So i had poori with aamras & pickle .I just dipped a piece of poori in aamras and mango thokku and enjoyed it.The combination of sweet and spicy taste made me eat 3-4 pooris.Do try this way.U may love it like me .Over to the recipe..
