Aam means mango and Ras means juice, so literally the aamras means mango juice. Aamras is a popular dessert from the western Indian states Maharashtra & Gujarat.
Aamras is traditionally served with Pooris but you can also eat with chappati, Paratha or as a sweet dish or dessert or just any time. In India aamras is prepared and serves during mango seasons. But now Mango is available in all seasons in abroad so you can have any time throughout the year.
When I make aamras I don’t use water or milk when served with pooris, but if you want a thin consistency water or milk can be used.
