Aam Ras is a popular dish in Gujarat and Maharashtra where it is enjoyed plain or with pooris.

I have tweaked this age-old delicacy just a bit to make it innovative.

The dish involves pakoras or fritters made of mango scoops prepared in a paniyaram (appe) vessel, served chilled in a bowl of aam ras (mango pulp).

Here's the recipe:


  • 1-2 Alphonso mangoes
  • 1/3 cup chickpea flour
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 2 tsp powdered sugar or to taste
  • 2 tsp ghee

For topping

  • Chopped pistachio
  • Dry rose petals
  • Pinch of cardamom powder


  • Scoop out pulp from one mango and keep aside.
  • Puree the remaining mango and refrigerate till serving time.
  • In a bowl, whisk together chickpea flour, sugar and cardamom powder with some water to make a batter of pouring consistency.
  • Grease a paniyaram/appe pan with some ghee and heat on medium flame.
  • Dip the mango scoops in the prepared batter and fry them till they turn light brown. Drain and keep aside./li>
  • To serve, ladle some mango pulp /puree in individual glasses or glass bowls and top it with 2-3 pakoras.
  • Garnish with chopped pistachios, dry rose petals and cardamom powder.
  • You may also enjoy it chilled.
