The traditional aam chunda, redefined. Grated mangoes sweetened with organic jaggery and spiced delicately to make a chutney that’s finger-lickin’ good.

Come summer, and the king of all fruits, our much-revered mango, takes on different avatars in the Indian cuisine. We dip our rotis into its pulp, add it to lassi and milk, make desserts out of it and then preserve it for posterity in the form of chutneys and pickles. Of all the chutneys though, the chunda is the most versatile. It’s jam-like consistency that still holds a lot of texture is not only intriguing, but supremely tempting too.
Ammiji did wonderful, delicious things with mangoes, and this chunda is testimony to that. She made it with jaggery instead of sugar, giving it an earthy taste that resonated so well with summer lunches.
Our favorite way to eat Ammiji’s chunda was to spread it on ajwain paranthas and roll them up and eat them. And that hasn’t changed after all these years, though occasionally when we can’t find any sweets to finish off a meal, we’ll just down a spoonful of chunda!
Add some sweet, nostalgic deliciousness to your meals with this chunda. Warning though, it’s hella addictive!
