I would like to send this to Ruth’s Bookmarked recipes event


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 Gujarat with Theplas (click on the link to see the recipe).You can see juicy tangy spicy sweet Chundo on top of the Thepla in the picture.

Preparation time: 50 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes
Makes : 1 ¼ cups
Storage: Upto 1 year (in a cool dry place)
