aam chunda recipe with step by step pics – quick, easy and tasty mango chunda recipe. aam ka chunda is a spicy, sour and sweet mango preserve made with raw unripe mangoes and spices.

aam ka chunda recipe

i had made aam chunda when i had made aam ka murabba. the method is same but a few spice powders added in this mango preserve makes a difference in the final taste. the spice powders i usually add are roasted cumin powder and red chili powder.

traditionally both chunda and murabba are made by keeping the mango-sugar mixture in a glass jar in sunlight. the intense sunlight of the hot indian summers, cooks this mixture. within some days the chunda or murabba is ready. like the murabba recipe, this is quick version that is made on stove top. i have also posted gajar ka murabba recipe.

serve aam ka chunda as a side condiment with a gujarati or north indian meal or you can also have it with chapatis, methi thepla, lauki thepla, mooli thepla, pooris, dhebra or rotis.

  1. Hi dasana, I made aam chhunda by ur recipe of 7 kg Raw mangoes , I followed the steps but it turns hard !! Tell me something to remove that hardness & make it again in smooth jam condition .

    • madhuri, the chunda has got cooked too much. what you do is take all the chunda in the pan. add water as required just to liquify it. then begin to heat on a low flame and stir continuously. the hardened sugar will dissolve in water and the chunda will come to a liquid consistency. continue to simmer and cook till you come to the 2 thread consistency. then switch off the flame. for checking, just take some of the sugar syrup from the sides in a spoon. let it cool a bit and then with your fingers check the consistency.

  2. Hi Dassana, I am newly married with zero experience in cooking and your website and the amazing recipes are godsend for people like me.
    I tried this chhunda recipe and it came out perfect. Since the mango season is about to end, I was thinking of making a huge batch and relishing for the rest of the year. Can we make and store it for long and if yes, then how? Should it be kept in fridge or in the freezer and in what type of container? Please help. Thanks a lot in advance.

    • thanks a lot arunima. definitely, you can make a huge batch of aam chunda. it stays good for a year. yes do keep in the fridge. glass is always better for storing and preserving. so if possible use a glass jar.
