Cooking Time: 
15 minutes

Complexity: 
Very Easy


Ingredients: 
3 cups mango pulp
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ghee, for greasing
1/2 teaspoon green cardamom powder
Directions: 
Add the mango pulp, sugar and cardamom powder in a pan and place it on the gas to boil.
After it comes to boil, cook for 5-8 minutes while you stir continuously, until the pulp thickens and slightly changes its colour.
Grease a plate or tray with ghee, pour the cooked mango mix on the plate and spread it out thinly to allow them to dry.
Now keep this plate out in the sun to dry. If the sun's heat is strong then the Aam Papad will be dried and ready by evening.
Footnotes: 
If you pour the Mango mixture to a large plate and very thin, then you can take out the whole strip, fold them a couple of times and then cut with a knife. This way, you can get a thick mango bar in shorter time. Otherwise, spread it out about 1-2 cm thick and you can cut Aam papad right away once they are dry.
