Preparation Time: 25 minutes

Cooking Time: 8 minutes

Serves: 4 persons

Ingredients for Aam Ras

Alphonso mangoes – 500 grams Cardamom powder – ½ tsp (ground cardamom)

1 pinch saffron strands (optional)

raw sugar or jaggery – 2 to 3 tsp (as required)

Vanilla ice cream – 1 scoop

¼ teaspoon dry ginger powder – ¼ tsp (optional)

Water or milk – as required (optional)

Method

- Rinse the alphonso mangoes thoroughly in clean water. Drain all the water and dry them with a clean kitchen towel. Peel and chop the mangoes.

- Add the chopped mangoes to a blender. You can also add some sugar or any other sweetener of choice if the mangoes are slightly tangy or sour.

- Blend to a smooth pulp. Transfer the mango pulp to a bowl. Add vanilla ice cream, cardamom powder and crushed saffron strands.

- Mix very well. To thin the consistency slightly, add some milk (dairy or vegan) or water.

- Pour in a container. Cover the container and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour. Or you can serve straightaway in small bowls.

Ingredients for Poori

Whole Wheat Flour – 360 grams Melted Ghee – 1 tsp

Salt – as required

Water – ¾ to 1 cup or add as required

Oil for frying – as required

Making the Poori dough

In a mixing bowl or on your work-surface, take the whole wheat flour, salt and oil or melted. Add little water at a time and knead well to form a dough. The dough should not be soft but stiff and tight. You can also make a semi-soft dough.

Method for assembling and rolling

- Divide the dough into small or medium pieces – about 25 to 30. Make into medium sized or slightly small balls.

- Spread a bit of oil on both sides of the dough ball. Spreading oil and not dusting with flour helps the oil to stay clean and you won’t see dark burnt flour particles inside the oil.

- Roll the dough evenly into circles of about ¼ inch – neither too thin nor thick.

- Place the rolled poori in a plate and cover with a clean kitchen towel, so that they don’t dry up.

Method for frying:

- Heat oil in a deep frying pan or kadai.

- When the oil is sufficiently hot then add one poori at a time and fry gently pressing down with the frying spoon or slotted spoon in a circular motion.

- Turn over when puffed up and fry till golden brown.

- Serve hot poori with aamras.
