About Aam Ka Chunda (Gujarathi Sweet Mango Pickle) Recipe

It's a lip smackingly good and addictive pickle that can be used over toast. Dip it with mathiri and as a side dish with roti/parathas.

Aam Ka Chunda (Gujarathi Sweet Mango Pickle)

Ingredients to make Aam Ka Chunda (Gujarathi Sweet Mango Pickle)

  • Grated Raw mango - 1 cup (Wash, wipe, peel and grate)
  • Grated jaggery -3/4 Cup
  • turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • salt - 1/2 tsp
  • red chilli Powder - 1 and 1/2 tsp
  • Roasted cumin Powder - 1/2 tsp

How to make Aam Ka Chunda (Gujarathi Sweet Mango Pickle)

  1. In a bowl, combine the grated raw mangoes, salt, turmeric powder. Leave aside for 1 hour. Once the mangoes have been marinated, you will see that some water has formed.
  2. At this stage add the grated jaggery and mix it well until it dissolves.
  3. Heat a heavy bottomed pan on low heat, add the mango and jaggery mixture. Stir continuously, in a few minutes you will find bubbles frothing up on the surface, but continue stirring until the jaggery syrup reaches a string consistency.
  4. This step is very important as over cooking will make the syrup very hard. Turn off the flame. Let the mixture cool completely. Then add the roasted cumin powder and red chilli powder.
  5. Store it in a sterilized bottle and it can be kept upto a year without refrigeration.

My Tip:

*Use green raw mangoes that are sour, this is a must for this recipe. *Jaggery can be adjusted based on how sour the mangoes are. If they are very sour then increase the jaggery quantity.
