Tip for Aam Ras
- You can garnish Aam ras with Cashew nuts, Almonds, Saffron strands as per your choice.
- But you can also add dried ginger powder (sounth). Most of my Gujarati friends add more ginger to it.

- You can add jaggery or canned sugar if required as per taste.
- It is an irresistible dish, and you cannot stop one or two bowls of this tasty sweet dish; therefore, add dried ginger (Sounth, suntha), which helps you digest.
- Another variation can be made by adding Yoghurt or hung curd or more over milk cream, which would increase the number of variables or choices, but it is as per your choice and options.
- Optional, you can add milk or little water in the same as per your choice. Might reduce the consistency of your dish.
- One more variation is by adding saffron milk to the mango pulp. It also gives the best taste.
