Aamras Puri

aamras puri
Every recipe brings back some good old memories. As a child, I used to assist my Mom in her kitchen. Mom used to assign some recipes to me.. Lemonade, Chai, Shikran, Aamras and all the easy stuff. Being Moms's sous chef was total fun with a sense of accomplishment. Here is the easy Aamras Puri which kids love and is perfect for entertaining guests too.

Mangoes/Aam - 4 medium
Green Cardamom/Elaichi - 1 pod
Wheat Flour - 4 cups
Brown Sugar or Sugar - 1 tsp

How to make Aamras Puri:
  • Wash and peel the mangoes. Dice the mango flesh and discard the mango seed. Blend the mango flesh with about 1/2 tsp brown sugar to a smooth puree. You can add a little milk too. 
  • Crush the cardamom seeds in a mortar pestle to a fine powder.
  • Pour the mango puree in a bowl and sprinkle cardamom powder on top.
  • Making Puris: In a mixing bowl, add wheat flour, 1/2 tsp brown sugar and little salt. Add water and knead to form a firm dough, not as soft as chapati dough. Make small round balls of the dough. Roll each one about 4 - 5 inches in diameter, dusting some flour. Alternatively, you can use oil to roll the puris instead of flour. Deep fry these rolled puris in hot oil till they puff up and turn golden brown.
  • Enjoy Aamras with hot crisp Pooris.
