Aamras is a popular Maharastrian dish made with mangoes and other flavourful spices like elachi and saffron. I have tasted this many times in my friend’s house as a dessert, but this is the first time i am making at home. Last week when i visited a friend she made dal baati and aamras for me. I thoroughly enjoyed the food and noted down the recipe of both. Will soon post the recipe of dal baati. Today i made poori for breakfast and made this aamras too. Poori and aamras turned out to be good combo. Check out my other mango recipes.
