Aam Chunda is traditionally prepared differently. When we visited Mumbai last year, one of our relatives taught my mother how to make aam chunda. She decided to give it a try this year. She urged me to try this dish, and my sister also gave it high praise. So, here I am sharing the tried and tested Mango Chunda (Raw mango Chutney) recipe

Sweet And Spicy Raw Mango Chutney

  • 1 Cup grated raw and fresh mango

Instant Raw Mango Chunda Recipe

  • Add 1 cup of shredded mango to a pan. We typically add the same quantity of sugar.

  • However, I've added 1/4 cup of sugar.

  • Add 1/2 teaspoon each of red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt, pepper, and asafoetida.

  • After thoroughly combining everything, cover it and set it aside for an hour.

  • Turn on the pan and begin cooking this after an hour. Given that we combined the mixture with sugar, water must have leaked out of it.

  • Continue to whisk it over a low flame.

  • Stir in 1 teaspoon of toasted cumin powder.

  • Keep looking for uniformity in one string.

  • Turn off the flame after you reach one string consistency.

  • After that, avoid cooking much more because it would toughen the aam chunda.

  • Once it has cooled, keep it in an airtight, clean container.

  • Maintain it in the fridge. This remains effective for almost three months.

Mango Chunda (Aam ki Chutney): Traditional Recipe

  • Grated mango and sugar are traditionally combined in one container. Due to the water that the sugar flows out, pick a small, tall jar.

  • For seven to eight days, cover it with a thin cloth and expose it to direct sunshine. Maintain it indoors all night.

  • You'll notice that the sugar has wonderfully solidified and turned into a kind of thick syrup after 8 days. Thus, cooking is not required for this procedure.

  • Add red chili powder, a little salt, and toasted cumin powder after 8 days, and stir thoroughly with a clean spoon.

  • Keep this in a dry, clean container. Additionally, this can be kept for a year.

  • Try preparing mango chunda using this approach according to tradition if you have access to an open patio and bright sunlight.
