Aam Ras Poori

Aam Ras Poori

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 – 1 to 2 tsp (as required)

Vanilla ice cream – 1 scoop

¼ teaspoon dry ginger powder – ¼ tsp (optional)

Water or milk – as required (optional)

Method

- Thoroughly rinse the Alphonso mangoes in clean water. Drain the water, then pat them dry with a fresh kitchen towel. Peel and slice the mangoes.

- To a blender, add the sliced mangoes. If the mangoes are a little tangy or sour, you may also add extra sugar or any other preferred sweetener of your choice.

- Blend to a pulpy consistency. Place the bowl with the mango pulp in it. Add vanilla ice cream, cardamom powder, and saffron strands which have been crushed.

- Mix thoroughly. Add some water or milk (dairy or vegan) to slightly thin the consistency.

- Pour into a container. Cover the container and cool it down in the refrigerator for 30 minutes to an hour. Or you can serve it straight away in small bowls.

Ingredients for Poori

Whole Wheat Flour – 360 grams

Melted Ghee – 1 tsp

Salt – as per your taste

Water – ¾ to 1 cup or add as required

Oil for frying – as required

Making the Poori dough

Take whole wheat flour, salt, and oil or melted ghee and mix them together in a bowl. To prepare the dough, add a little water at a time and knead evenly. The dough should be firm and stiff rather than mushy. Additionally, a semi-soft dough can be prepared.

Method for assembling and rolling

- Divide the dough into 25 to 30 small to medium pieces. Mould into slightly larger or medium-sized balls.

- -Apply a thin layer of oil to the dough ball's top and bottom. Spreading oil rather than dusting it with flour keeps the oil clean and prevents the presence of black, burned flour particles.

- Do not roll the dough too thin or too thick; just proportionately into circles approximately 14 inch in diameter.

- To prevent them from drying out, put the rolled pooris on a platter and cover them with a fresh kitchen towel.

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.
