Amras – Mango Shake the Indian Way

Now that I belong to a Marwari family (post marriage, that is), I am getting to learn a lot of typical Marwari dishes. Marwar is the desert area of India now known as Rajasthan. It has its own cuisine influenced by the extreme variation in climate and the availability of seasonal vegetables. Mango is a much treasured golden fruit among Marwari custom and is used in a variety of dishes. One of them is what we call “Amras” meaning the juice of mango. Being a seasonal dish, it is much sought after.

Preparation Time – 15 mins

Servings – 4 people

Ingredients

2 Mangoes

1 cup milk

2 tblsp sugar (or to taste)

Almonds

Peel the mangoes and discard the seed while retaining the pulp. Churn the mango pulp with milk and sugar in a mixer grinder. If the mango is too sweet, you can leave off the sugar. Chop the almonds finely and keep aside. Once the amras is ready, chill it for a couple of hours. Just before serving, garnish it with almonds.
