Mango leather or aam papad is a childhood favorite. I am sure you, too, love it. On previous occasions, i would sun dry mango puree to make aam papad, which took 2-3 days to be ready.But let's cut the long process of making aam papad short by baking the ingredients to make instant baked mango preserve or leather. The end product tastes as yum as the real thing with the added benefit of jaggery and spices.So let's begin baking aam papad in airfryer. You can make this mango preserve in oven, or otg.

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.
