INSTANT CHUNDA (SWEET MANGO PICKLE)
I would like to share this recipe that I found on Tarla Dalal’s website. I always thought that making pickles involves a very detailed recipe until I stumbled upon this recipe for Instant Chunda.
1 cup (140 gms) raw mangoes, grated
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1 1/2 cups (300 gms) sugar
1 tbsp chilly powder
1 tsp roasted cumin seeds, crushed
combine the grated mangoes, salt and turmeric powder and leave aside for 15 minutes.
Add the sugar little by little (2 tbsps at a time) to the mango mixture and stir continuously using a spoon or a whisk till all the sugar is nearly dissolved. the entire process will take about 30 to 35 minutes.
Heat a pan, add the mango and sugar mixture and go on stirring over a very slow flame till the sugar has dissolved completely and small bubbles appear on the surface of the mixture (approx. 3 to 4 minutes).
Remove from the flame and let the mixture cool completely.
Add the chilly powder and cumin seeds and store in a sterilized glass jar.
I love to eat Chunda or Chundo as it called in
