She was telling me to try out this recipe and my sister was highly recommending that too.

Aam chunda | Mango chunda I have tried a few years back but somehow couldn’t get good clicks, so didn’t post that. I had this in my to-do list for a long time and got many requests also to post the recipe of aam chunda in Jeyashri’s kitchen.

This time I followed Divya kuduva’s version which she posted on Instagram and it turned out so well. The family enjoyed it with parathas.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup grated mango
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • ½ tsp red chili powder
  • ¼ tsp pepper powder
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 tsp roasted cumin powder
  • Asafoetida a pinch
  • ½ tsp turmeric powder

Instructions

  • In a pan add 1 cup grated mango. Usually, we add an equal amount of sugar.
  • But I have added ¾ cup of sugar
  • Add ½ tsp red chili powder, ½ tsp turmeric powder, ½ tsp salt, ½ tsp pepper powder and a pinch of asafoetida.
  • Mix everything well and cover it and keep it aside for an hour.
  • After an hour, switch on the pan and start cooking this. The mixture must have oozed out water, as we have mixed it with sugar.
  • Keep stirring it in a low flame.
  • Add 1 tsp roasted cumin powder and mix well.
  • Keep checking for one string consistency.
  • Once you get the one string consistency, switch off the flame.
  • Do not cook much after that, as it will make the aam chunda harder.
  • Once it is cool, store it in a clean dry airtight container.
  • Keep it inside the refrigerator. This stays good for more than 3 months.

  • Traditionally, mix grated mango and sugar in a vessel. Choose a little tall vessel, as the sugar oozes out water.
  • Cover it with a thin cloth and keep it under the open sunlight for 7- 8 days. During the night time keep it inside.
  • After 8 days, you will see the sugar has nicely thickened and formed a kind of thick syrup. So this method does not need cooking.
  • After 8 days add red chili powder, a little salt, roasted cumin powder, and mix well with a clean spoon.
  • Store this in a clean dry jar. This can be stored for a year too.
