Chunda-recreated from Spice-Club

After drooling over some tasty recipes in SWC-Gujarat I decided to make Chunda, a recipe contributed by Cham of Spice-Club. Pickle was finger licking . I used cut mango pieces instead of grated mango. Totapuri Mangoes have thick skin so I cut them into small pieces instead of grating them. Recipe is same as mentioned by Cham, but I used 1 cup sugar instead of 1.5 cups and did not use microwave to make the pickle. I made it on stove top and it turned out absolutely delicious. Thanks Cham for sharing.

I used them :

Totapuri Mangoes : 1 cup of tightly packed pieces (washed the mango, wiped to dry)
Sugar:1cup
Turmeric: 1tsp
Red chilli powder : 1tbsp
Cumin Crushed : 1tsp
Salt : 1tsp

1. Mix cut mangoes, salt and turmeric; Keep it aside for 10 minutes.
2. Mix Sugar and put it on stove top. Use a thick bottomed vessel.
3. Bring it to boil and continue till it attains 1 string consistency. It takes 5 mins and not more than that. When it is cool add red chilli powder and cumin powder. Mix. Pickle is ready!!!!
4. Scoop it into a sterilized bottle.
5. Enjoy it !!!

@ Sangeeth,
Oh yes! they are on demand at home now :D

@Cham,
I somehow do not feel like using MW for cooking. That is the reason I sticked to stove top. MW method is super fast I agree with you.

@Spicytasty,
I know..I drooled so much yesterday that I went and made it.
