  • 2 - mangoes, raw and firm
  • 1 cup - Sugar
  • 2 tbsp - salt
  • 1 tsp - Turmeric
  • 4-5 - Cloves
  • 1 inch stick Cinnamon
  • 2-3 - Cardamoms
  • 1 tbsp - chilli powder
  • 1/4 tsp - Saffron
  • How to Make Chunda:

    1. Peel and chop mangoes into very fine pieces. Place in a jar (earthen, glass, or china).
    2. Sprinkle salt and turmeric.
    3. Shake the jar to coat mangoes evenly.
    4. After 2 hours add sugar. Shake again.

    9. When done, add the chilli powder.
    10. Crush the other spices coarsely and add to pickle.
    11. Be careful not to touch a wet spoon to the pickle.
