Ambe Hashale (Aamras / Mango Juice in Coconut Milk )

Posted on Updated on

Ambe Hashale

How long it takes: 15 minutes

Number of servings: 4-5

I have already put up Aamras and this is the old conventional Aamras with coconut milk and jaggery. We give this concoction a special name and place in Konkani cuisine, ‘Ambe hashale’. It tastes great with either puri, chapati or even served chill as a drink.  I have used the mangoes from our own garden and home-made fresh coconut milk. The recipe is very simple and easy yet very tasty. Here it is:

What you need to have:

1. Chopped sweet mango pieces – 1/2 cup

2. Mango pulp(sweet) – Around 2 cups

3. Coconut milk – 2 cups

4. Jaggery – As per taste

5. Fresh grated coconut –  2 cups (To extract coconut milk )

6. Thin Beaten rice – A handful

7. Cardamom – 5

Fresh Sweet Mangoes

Ingredients of Aamras

What you do with what you have:

1. Preparing home-made coconut milk: Grate coconut and grind it in the mixer adding water in steps to a medium coarse consistency. Then, to extract coconut milk, strain the ground mix in a strainer.  Add some more water and grind again so that you get some more coconut milk on straining. Coconut milk is as shown in image-2 (above).

2. Wash, peel and chop mango into small pieces as many as required to add to Aamras as garnishing. Grind the remaining pieces it in the mixer with chopped jaggery into a smooth paste. Add this paste to the coconut milk from step-1 to it.

3. Add the mango pulp to coconut milk and stir well. Wash and squeeze water from beaten rice and add it to the same mix. Peel cardamom and powder it and add to it.  Aamras is ready to be served either chilled or at normal temperature. Add chopped mango pieces too.

                                                                                                                                                  Chopped mango pieces, soaked beaten rice & cardamom powder being added

4. Transfer to serving bowls and serve chilled. Like I always say – Yummmmmmmmmmmmm !!!

Ready to serve Aamras (Ambe hashale)

How long it takes: 15 minutes

Number of servings: 4-5

Good to remember:  

1. Use fresh, sweet and pulpy mangoes like the Ratnagiri Appus or even Pyry variety.

2. Tangy variety of mangoes will curdle coconut milk and may spoil the taste of the dish.

3. One can even use the coconut milk available in super bazar as well, but as far as possible home made coconut milk is always more welcome.

4. Adding beaten rice is optional.

      Hi Swathi,

      Some people prefer to relish it. Some like it to be fine. So normally we just stir in and serve. Please use “Thelu avalakki” (pathal povu” in konkani). I hope i have made myself clear.
