“Aam ki launji | | Raw Mango Chutney | Launji | Kairi Chutney” is a popular chutney recipe in north india. In summer months when raw mango is abundant, many dishes are made from mangoes. This is one recipe which is reminds me of school days when my mom ran short of vegetables to pack in lunch box, we use to get this raw mango chutney along with salted desi ghee parathas. And it tasted yumm!!! You can also apply this chutney as a jam on bread and it tastes good too. I believe jams came from English people but these sweet and sour chutneys are Indian jams/spreads which are so flavorful and delightful.



Other raw mango recipe already on the blog is Aam Panna / Kairi Panna which is one of the most popular posts. You can try that too to beat heat this summer as it is refreshing and rejuvenating.
