Aamras ~ Indian Mango Smoothie

Aamras is a very popular, delicious, quick and easy Indian dessert. It is just like mango smoothie. It is a good accompaniment for puris and roti/chapati.



Ingredients

  • Ripe Mangoes (preferably Alphonso or Payari) - 4
  • Sugar - 1 tbsp
  • Milk - ¼ cup
  • Cardamom powder - ½ teaspoon 
  • Nutmeg powder- a pinch
  • Pure ghee- 2 tsp (optional)

Method:
  •  Wash and press the mangoes from all sides. Squeeze the mango pulp and discard the seeds. (or cut the mangoes and put out the pulp.)
  • Combine mango pulp, sugar, milk, nutmeg powder and cardamom powder. Blend together into smooth paste.
  • Refrigerate it and let it cool for some time. 
  • Serve with puris or rotis.

Tips: 
  • Adjust the milk according to consistency required and sugar according to sweet taste required.
  • Actually I don't like using ghee in aamras according to taste. But my hubby like it and gives encouraged to use this. Because according to Ayurveda, ghee is helpful in digestion of mango.
