Peel the mangoes, remove the stone and chop them. Add to the blender along with other ingredients.
Blend it till you get smooth puree.
Now add flavor ingredient whichever you are using. If using saffron then add it into the blender.
And mix it well.
Sugar quantity is depending on the mangoes. If your mangoes are sour then you need more sugar. If mangoes are sweet then you need less sugar or sometimes no sugar. I have not added any sugar because the fruit was sweet enough to our taste.
Milk or water– I usually do not add any milk or water. Because I like thick and strong mango flavor to my aamras. Specially Maharashtra, people use milk in aamras, while in Gujarat, people don’t use any milk or water. Addition of milk/water is up to your liking. If adding milk please careful not to thin out too much that it becomes drink.
Shelf life – it can be kept in refrigerator in air tight container up to a week. You can freeze it in 1 serving portions and enjoy them any time of the year when mangoes are not in season.Serving suggestion – Best served with poori or roti. When I was kid, I like to eat aamras with plain rice, but don’t like this combination right now.
