- The amount of sugar depends on the sweetness of mangoes and your individual preference of sweetness. if the mangoes are tangy, then you could add some sugar .but if the mangoes are very sweet, you need not add any sweetener.
- Aamras is best prepared with ripe mangoes or overripe too, if they too ripe then it is best to make Aamras instead of eating slices.
