Croissant, a buttery, flaky French puff made with all-purpose flour, is a delightful option for breakfast or a snack. The traditional croissant is a perfect companion to enjoy with a cup of hot tea or coffee, much like the Indian bun maska or patties. You would have often seen a few variations of croissants with chocolate sauce, berry sauce, or other fruity filling.

However, the dish would not have gone viral if it had been paired with any popular fruit sauce. A few days ago, aamras croissant took the internet by storm, so much so that actors like Tamannaah Bhatia and Ayesha Raza tried it as well. While fruity fillings are common to infuse more flavours to a croissant, adding aamras fuses the French puff pastry with Indian notes.

Tamannaah Bhatia called this fusion ‘nice’, therefore, Slurrp thought to try it and share the review with you. Here is everything you need to know about ordering aamras croissants and how much they cost.

Viral Aamras Croissant

The only place from where you can get the viral aaras croissant is Salad Days, a chain of cloud kitchens serving tossed gourmet salads across Delhi-NCR, Bengaluru, and Mumbai. The viral fusion of Indian and French cuisine is the new addition to their menu that will cost you Rs 299. 

It comes wrapped in a paper inside a box. The size of the croissant is large enough for one person to enjoy this delight. Its crust is flaky, buttery, and soft. The moment you dig into the aamras filling will bring a burst of flavour. Along with mango puree, the joint also adds thinly sliced almonds for a crunch and richness.

It would be an understatement to call this fusion dish ‘good’. If you try it expecting the taste of a traditional croissant, you won’t be doing justice to the buttery-sweet snack. Dig into it with an open mind and you will be surprised with the seamless blend of Indian and French notes. The sweet flavour from aamras will take time for your taste buds to adjust. However, after a couple of bites, you won’t even notice when the entire croissant will be finished and all you are left with are crumbs. 

What To Drink With Aamras Croissant?

Aamras croissant is a delicate and flavourful snack that might not pair well with a cup of masala chai or freshly brewed coffee. You must pair it with a glass of fresh juice or order the same from Salad Days. They have orange juice, watermelon juice, rise & shine juice, Indonesian tepache, peach iced tea, and more. 

The food joint has also recently come up with five fresh dips - presto spread, chipotle spread, fresh salsa, organic kimchi, and guacamole. They take pride in dispatching fresh batches with no preservatives added. Try their kimchi with your rice bowl or ramen (taking inspiration from What’s Wrong With Secretary Kim), and you will be in for a flavourful ride tasting sweet, spicy, tangy, and salty notes. 

If you live in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, or Bengaluru, you can try gourmet salad meals, pita pockets, desserts, warm grain bowls, gourmet sandwiches, soups, and overnight oatmeal bowls from the menu of Salad Days. They cater to the vegan, vegetarian, and non-vegetarian dietary preferences of their customers.
