Jhatpat Chunda


CHUNDA is a sweet and tangy raw mango pickle.This ia a very popular GUJARATI dish !! This goes well with roti,thepla or parathas!!This is a combination of sugar and raw mango.the traditional method of preparing chunda is  a very long procedure.Sugar and grated mangoes are kept in direct heat of the sun for 10 days to dissolve sugar till the pickle reaches a clear syrup consistency.But ,I have used the instant method which is very easy to prepare!!

INGREDIENTS:
1cup grated raw mango
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp turmeric powder(haldi)
1 tblsp red chilli powder
1 1/2 tsp roasted cumin powder (bhuna jeera powder)
PROCEDURE:

  • In a vessel take sugar and water and make it boil
  • When the sugar syrup comes to one thread consistency add haldi,salt and grated raw mango
  • Let it boil till it becomes little thick
  • When it comes to room temperature add chilli powder and jeera powder
  • Mix well and store in a air tight jar
