Aamras Poori

Aamras Poori is a unique combo snack popular mainly in Gujarat and Maharastra. People from, many other states who had a taste of this delicacy modified the method s according to their liking. Today aamras poori is a prized dish at weddings and other functions. Aamras is traditionally made with Alfonso Mangoes but other varieties that are juicy and pulpy such as Raspuri or Badami also can be used. Fresh mangoes taste better than the tinned mango pulp but in off season one has to go resort to mango pulp. In the North they add milk to Aamras and sometimes garnish it with dry fruits. At the local level, we make it with just the mango pulp, sugar and a dash of cardamom powder. It is however, important to chill the mangoes and serve the aamras chilled with piping hot pooris!
