Aamras

Spread the love

I was very busy the last few days traveling and entertaining family. I don’t like to cook and take pictures when people are around and hence did not update the blog. Also, we ate out a lot and did not cook much either at home. When Valli announce the 6th edition of marathon last week, I sat on it until Monday before deciding to jump in. She had some interesting themes to pick from and I chose “the recipe less picture post”. This theme is a bit challenging and I am little intimidated by the theme I chose for this marathon.  I had second thoughts about it and I almost emailed Srivalli yesterday,  to tell her I was changing my theme. It is always fun to take up challenging tasks and blogging marathon is no exception, isn’t it?  So here I am, running yet another marathon for the next seven days, with recipe less picture posts!

Since my theme for this edition is recipe less picture post, I will give the ingredient list in the order they are used in the recipe, followed by the pictorial step by step preparation. By the way, if you ever noticed, I always list the ingredients in the order they are used in the recipe. Once the marathon is over, I will update the recipe at the end of the post. But for now, it is just the step by step pictures.

Aamras, Mango Juice, mango pulp

For the first day of the marathon, I am sharing a mango recipe. I started to prepare mango milk shake and ended up with aamras, mango juice/pulp. After a heavy lunch, I was in no mood to drink a glass of mango milkshake and decided to make aamras instead.  This was my dessert and aamras can easily be transformed into milkshake by adding more milk.  As i was afraid, when I made today’s recipe, I took pictures of each and every step except the most important step of this preparation, blending/pureeing the ingredients.  I only realized it after I ate the aamras. Luckily, I had more magoes and made it again, taking the picture of the most import step of this preparation. I hope I don’t make similar mistakes in the next 6 days! :)
