Kesari Aam Ras with Puri (Saffron-flavored Mango Pulp with Fried Puri)

Kesari Aam Ras with Puri (Saffron-flavored Mango Pulp with Fried Puri)

The first dish that comes to mind when the mango season begins is aam-ras-puri. Aam-ras: rich, smooth with the faint whiff of saffron goes marvelously with piping hot puris. Food in the summer season doesn't get any better than this. Then of course, I'm the devil who eats lesser puris just so that I have space in my tummy for additional aam-ras. ;-)


2 kilos Alphonso or Payeri mangoes
Powdered sugar, to taste depending on the sweetness of the mangoes
1 - 2 cups milk, depending on the consistency preferred
1 large pinch saffron/kesar


  1. Peel the mangoes and cut the flesh into cubes.

  2. Put the mango cubes in a mixer and blend till smooth.
  3. Add milk and blend to desired consistency.
  4. Check the sweetness of the mango-milk mixture and add sugar as needed.
  5. Blend to ensure the sugar is dissolved.
  6. Add the saffron threads and blend once more.
  7. Remove in a large bowl or in small individual bowls. Keep in the fridge to chill. Serve with puris.

Chef Notes:

  1. This is not a milk-shake hence do not add too much milk. A little milk is added as plain mango pulp is extremely thick.
  2. Feel to serve this plain, without puri, as a dessert if you so prefer.
