Aamras or Amras is the pulp of the tropical fruit Mango eaten in India. The pulp of a ripe fruit is extracted usually by hand and consumed along with Chapati. At times ghee and milk are added to the pulp to enhance its flavour. Sugar is also added to adjust the sweetness.

A regional version of Amras is a popular dessert in Rajasthani cuisine and Marwari, Maharashtra(ambyacha ras), Gujarati homes, especially during festivities.

Since the fruit is seasonal, being harvested at the end of summer, the need to preserve the fruit in the form of pulp has given rise to a moderately large Mango processing industry.
