Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Mango Season!! Is there anyone who does not fall for mango!!! We can prepare many dishes with mango. Already many of my blogging friends have posted the recipes with mango. I am also here with Aamras or shikarni ( ಶಿಕರ್ಣಿ), which is famous in summer season. You can have it with Rice poli, Puran poli, Puri or chapati. Tastes great with anything.
This time, Mangoes are very less seen in the market. My husband got it from a village. He got the Aapus variety. Actually, Kalmi variety is used to make the Aamras, but as he did not get it, I managed to prepare it with Aapus only. We have to cut and eat Aapus variety mangoes.He likes Puri with aamras. so, It is for him!! Puri Aamras is a great combination!!
I am giving the recipe for Aamras.
Juicy mangoes - 3 to 4
Jaggery - 1 cup, crushed(adjust the quantity according the the sweetness of mango and jaggery)
Cardamom powder - 1/4tsp
Ripe banana - 1, sliced into small cubes
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Wash the mangoes and keep in water for some time. Remove from the water and peel the skin. Squeeze the mangoes and take a pulp in a big bowl. Keep the mangoes in another bowl. When all the mangoes are over and kept in a bowl, add little warm drinking water. Squeeze these mangoes again in a first bowl to take out all the pulp!
Add all other ingredients and blend it with a blender only for few seconds. Keep it in the fridge, till you prepare the puris. Click here for puri recipe.
