Authentic Aamras

Aamras is nowadays prepared in many ways by grinding mango chunks with added other ingredients, but the traditional or I could say the authentic way of preparing involves extracting pure juicy mango pulp alone without any fibrous content. Having been in Gujarat for few years I tried to get hold of few recipes that are considered to be a must during particular time of the year, say aamras during mango season, Ghujiyas/Ghughras during Diwali etc.I got sweet mangoes from an Indian store nearby. Thought to prepare aamras out of it.
Here I share with you the old way of extracting pulp from mango.


Ingredients:
Fully ripe sweet mango-1

Recipe:
Press mango nicely or rub it on the counter well so that lumps inside get released and mushy pulp gets ready within.
Place a sieve on top of a bowl in which you would like to collect the pulp or aamras.
Pinch the top off the mango and squeeze the pulp out of the mango during which the seed and the pulp will come out together.
Through the sieve let the pulp flow and the collected pulp itself is aamras which is free from the fibrous content present in the mangoes.
Simple authentic tasty aamras is ready.


Note:
If your mango isn't sweet then you may have to add sugar. But usually for aamras fully ripe, sweet mangoes are preferred.

Enjoy the dish! n don't forget Eat and Eat little MORE.. :)
