Amras

Mango is one of my favourite fruits. This fruit has a lot of childhood memories attached to it. There was not a single day during the summer season in India when we didnot have this fruit either having it cut into cubes or making this 'Amras'. I could have roti or rice simply with this, no need to subji and the only mango I loved was 'Langda Aam'. There in North East India we didnot have Alphonso Mango. We also had mango trees in our house but those mangoes were best eaten raw when not ripe coz they were very fibrous. After a rainy night, first thing in the morning we did was to check for the fallen mangoes!!:) I loved them with a spicy masala of red chilli powder and black salt. Oh! my mouth is watering as I write this!
After coming here I have missed this fruit a lot and have never got any other variety that can match 'Langda Aam'. Well, something is better than nothing. So, I devour what ever I get here. Coming to the recipe now-

Serves 2-3.
1 large mango ripe.
1/4 cup milk.
2-3 tbsp sugar.
1/4 cup water.
Ice cubes to serve, optional.

Process:

Peel the mango and take out as much flesh as possible. Churn it in the mixer with the milk and sugar. Adding sugar will depend on how sweet the mango is, so adjust accordingly. Strain the mixture through a strainer. Add water to reach your desired consistency. Chill it in the refrigerator. Take it out 15 mins before serving. Add an ice cube (optional) and serve.

Sending this off to Srivalli's Thanda Mela. Enjoy!
