Kacche Aam ki Khatti Meethi Chutney with step by step recipe - This is quick, easy and yummy mango chatpati chutney. This is also called Aam ki launji. This recipe is a must make when raw mangoes are in season.

Aam Ki Launji is a sweet and sour relish made using with raw mangoes and sugar (i have made with jaggery also as well sugar too) but this recipe is with sugar only. I have used various Indian spices such as kalonji (nigella seeds), heeng, saunf(fennel seeds) and red chilli powder.
You can make a big batch and refrigerate it for a few days and keep enjoying with your daily meals. It can be preserved for 2-3 months if you keep in the fridge.

For healthy reason, mangoes not only help in reducing cholesterol but they are also good for our eyes and skin. Mangoes increase our immunity level and good for digestion.

Mango chutney is really easy to make as well as very tasty. There are different recipes to make this chutney in every household and with a little difference here and there, the taste changes slightly.

This is my Badi Mummy recipe(means my tai ji) she used to make all preserves at home like jam, chutney as well tomato ketchup too.

Her way of making launji is different she used to add grated  mangoes (not used whole mangoes) so I have adapted her full recipe.

Aam ki chutney are made by keeping the mango-sugar mixture keeping in a jar for one day on a room temperature and then next day cooked on stove top. 

Serve aam ki chutney as a side condiment with any meal or you can also have it methi paratha, poha missi roti, poori and many more.
