Homemade Mango Fruit Leather / Fruit roll ups / Aam Papad

IMG_2809 name watermark-1When I was a kid, my aunt used to make us fruit leather especially Mango leather.  It was healthy, fun, and I’m sure she felt good about making it for us. Then Fruit Roll-ups came out. Those were not so healthy. Homemade fruit is the perfect snack for any health conscious foodies.  I thought it is a time to return to the roots and make my own for my son. This no-sugar added recipe is great as a children’s snack – they won’t be able to tell the difference!Ingredients

  • 2 large sweet ripe mangoes, peeled and cut in chunks
  • Juice of 2 limes


Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place a sheet of parchment paper in a baking sheet. Place all ingredients in a food processor or a good blender. Pulse until smooth. You can add sugar if mango is sour.

Spread mixture over the sheet with a spatula or the back of a spoon.  Make sure the mixture is evenly spread over the sheet and not too thick or thin and bake for 2-4 hours, or until fruit leather is dry (cooking times will vary, depending on how thick you spread the mixture, and how much water is in the fruit). Allow to cool completely.

Cut into even portions with kitchen scissors. Roll up and tie with ribbon and Enjoy.IMG_2818-1 watermark 2

    You rock “purevegetarianbites”. I am from Karachi and my late mom was from Bihar and we always cherished the ‘amoat’ brought from Patna by relatives. When asked about the recipe my mother always told us it was difficult due to the sun-dray process and of course the enourmous number of flies that would have to be taken care of. Ah, she would have loved the amoat from your process. I tried making some and was very surprised by the results. They are wonderful. But I guess either my oven showed the wrong temperature or whatever that they tend to burn at 200C. Around 120C in oven for at least 2hours a fine film forms from the initial paste about 5mm thick. Also with a slightly oiled aluminum foil they come off quite fine. Thanks again for the recipe.

    • Thanks Riaz for trying my recipe. Yes,200C temp is too high it is gonna burn. As in recipe, use 200F which is equals to 93 C and oven bake for 2-4 hours.
      Using oiled aluminum foil will definitely help to come off easily.
      Thanks again for your rocking comment.

    You can also add 2 pods of cardamom to give it a mild flavour. The roll looks different and something I never thought of. Will definitely try this variation while preparing my next batch of aam papad.

    Adding 2 pods of Cardamom (elaichi) to this aam papad recipe recipe will enhance the taste further. You can even add a little bit of Kala Namak, Kali mirchi and some ginger powder to give it a spicy taste.
