Total Time: 
Serves: 4
  • For the Puri:
  • Whole wheat flour- 1-1/2 cup
  • Salt- ¼tsp
  • Water- about half cup or as required
  • Oil to deep fry
  • For the sweet mango sauce:
  • Mangoes- 3 med sized, peeled and chopped
  • Sugar- 6 tbsp
  • Milk- ¼ cup
  • Cardamom powder- ¼tsp
  • Saffron- 8-10 strands, lightly roasted and powdered (optional)
  1. For the Puri:
  2. Mix the salt and flour in a bowl and add water gradually. Mix well until a soft pliable dough is formed.
  3. Cover and allow the dough to rest for 10min
  4. Divide the dough into 10-12 equal portions and roll each portion into a disc of 5-6 inches in diameter.
  5. Heat oil in a wok and drop the rolled dough into the oil.
  6. While the puri is slowly raising to the surface make sure to keep ladling hot oil on the surface. This helps the puri to puff up.
  7. Repeat the same procedure with the remaining dough.
  8. For the Mango sauce:
  9. In a blender, mix the mango pieces and the milk and blend.
  10. Add the sugar, cardamom powder, saffron, and blend again.
  11. Pour the mango pulp into individual bowls and serve with hot puris
The quantity of the sugar used largely depends on the sweetness of the mangoes. Increase the sugar if the mangoes are sour and decrease if they are sweet. The aamras can also be served with vanilla ice cream. It tastes heavenly!!!
