For this super easy super tempting baked aam papad, you need raw mangoes. But if you wonder whether you can make mango leather with ripe mangoes, then my answer is yes. A big Yes. In that case, you will need less amount of sweetener to sweeten the aam papad. Sounds good, right?Puree in a blender raw mangoes without water. I have taken 3 medium-sized unripe mangoes with which we make aam ka acharr. By the way I have shared my dadi's Punjabi aam achaar recipe on another channel as a guest post.  I will be posting the link in the description.

I have also added 1 ripe mango for sweetness. 

I wanted to add more as a substitute to jaggery but in Odisha, mangoes have already disappeared from the markets. I got these raw mangoes from a tree in our neighborhood. LUCKY ME!


3 raw mangoes

1 ripe mango (or even papaya)

1 tsp- black salt/mineral salt

1/2 tsp- black pepper powder

1 tsp- jeera or cumin seeds

1 tsp- red chili powder

1/2 tsp- hing (asafetida)

1 cup- jaggery powder or jaggery or sweetener of choice (more or less depending on the tartness of mangoes and preferred sweetness)*

Next add spices and salt. I have used 1 tsp of black salt, 1 tsp of jeera or cumin seeds, 1 tsp of red chili powder, 1/2 tsp of black pepper powder. 

I have also added 1/2 tsp of hing or asafetida. 

The amount of jaggery depends on how sweeter you want your aam papad. I have added only 1/2 cup of jaggery because I wanted my aam papad khatta meetha. So you can always add more of sweetener if you want it on the sweeter side. 

The spices depend on your taste preference. You can add spices of choice to flavor your baked aam papad.

Blend everything together. Pour into a greased baking dish. 

I have baked in two utensils in airfryer. Bake aam papad for 45 minutes at 120 degrees celsius. Check if it looks baked from top. If not, you may bake it longer. The top shelf baked the mango leather quicker than the lower shelf . So after the first round of baking for 45 minutes, I changed the places of the utensils. The top one that was almost baked was shifted to the bottom while the other one was moved to the top. I baked these again at 120 degrees celsius for 20 minutes. 

Check if done. If not, you may bake again for 10 minutes.Remove from the baking dish. Let baked mango leather cool down before slicing it into pieces.Take a trip down your memory lane when you put one of the pieces into your mouth. 

This is serious yum stuff. I store it in the refrigerator. It will stay good for a long time.I hope you liked the process of baking aam papad in airfryer. I have also shared mango sauce on the channel. You will also find vegan mango shake recipe on the channel. There are mango ice cream recipes too on my blog as well as on the channel.

Can we use the soaked water for millets? Does millet need to be soaked?

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
