Aam ka chunda is a spicy, sweet, and sour mango pickle made with green raw mangoes in Gujarati style. This instant pickle goes great with summer Indian cuisine. (Step-by-Step-Recipe)
About Aam ka Chunda Recipe:
Aam ka chunda, or Keri No Chundo, is a popular Gujarati complement (pickle). It has a sweet, tangy, and spicy flavor combination that brings spice to any ordinary meal.
Traditionally Aam Chunda is made by keeping the mango-sugar mixture in a glass jar in the sun. This mixture is cooked by the strong sun of the hot Indian summers. The Aam ka chunda would be ready in a few days. This is a cooktop version, just like the murabba.
Gujarati households serve chunda as a side dish with their daily meals. It’s delicious with puris, theplas, phulkas, and even tawa paratha.
When I was making Aam ka Murabba, I made Mango chunda. Although the procedure is the same, the addition of a few spice powders to this mango preserve changes the taste. I will be sharing the recipe for Aam ka Murabba in my next post.
Why you should Make Aam ka Chunda?
We should definitely make this recipe now that mangoes are available. Here are some of the reasons why I recommend making this –
- Can be stored and consumed for a longer period
- Goes well with poori, paratha, stuffed paratha
- A great option, when you are not in the mood of making a side dish for paratha’s and poori
