How to make the recipe?
  1. Very important use chilled Mangoes.
  2. Just peel their skin and chop the flesh into medium pieces.
  3. Just taste the mangoes if they are sweet need not add sugar. But if they are not very sweet than add sugar as per your taste. Grind them into a processor until thick and smooth. Pour this Mango puree into the serving bowl scraping from all the side of the processor. Now keep this bowl in the refrigerator for 2 hours.
  4. Serve chilled............Decorate with dry fruits or mint leaves.Also you can garnish few rose petals on Aamras.
Method for making Puris:
  1. Take a mixing vessel. Combine all the ingredients and knead into a dough. If its too dry add little water. If its too thin please add more flour. For Indian Puris the dough should be slightly firm and not too soft. Knead for atleast 15 mins.
  2. Now divide the dough into 4 balls.
  3. Roll each ball with a roller into round shape with thick base. Take a cutter or a small steel bowl.
  4. Place these bowls into the flatten dough and put some pressure on the bowls. Repeat the same process with remaining dough. Now place these round puris on a paper napkin.
  5. Take a frying pan add oil into it. Keep on low heat. Once oil is hot gently add puris. Deep fry them from both sides until light golden brown.
  6. While frying Puris give some pressure with the back of spoon on the. So it fries evenly and also becomes little fluffy.
  7. Place these fried Puris on tissue paper to absorb excess oil from them.
  8. Serve Puris hot with chilled Aamras.
Notes
1. Preferably Alphonso Mangoes would be better to make Aamras
2. Don't fry the Puris too much else it might burn.
Also once you fry the Puris once they are at room temperature. Cover them else it 3. might get firm.
