What to do, when you want to store mano pulp for a long time, to enjoy its flavour when it’s not avaialabel. Well then you can even make yummy Mango pulp rolls – aam papad or mango bars. My mom used to make homemade aam papad for me with mango pulp so I can relish them when the season of mangoes is gone.
So sharing with you all, the process to make homemade aam papad
- mango pulp extracted from 2 mangoes, either squeeze it out or peel the outer cover and chop to pieces and put in a mixer to get a fine paste. For latest mixer grinders in market click here
- sugar 1 cup( it can be adjusted as per the sweetness of mangoes)
- cardamom/ elaichi powder 1/2 Tsp
- 1/2 teaspoon ghee , for greasing
Note – you may think why to add sugar if the mango is sweet, but it is very much required else the aam poli/ papad will turn black. Also sugar acts as a preservative so the poli lasts longer for storage.
Mix all the above ingredients and then pour the pulp on a greased plate of the desired size.
keep it in sun for at least 2 days till it is properly dried.
