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.

  3. Hi Dassana, I have tried several of your recipes and each and every one of them have turned out fabulous. Infact,at vegetarian dinner parties, I have dished up complete menus with your recipes and they have always had excellent comments. You are indeed a blessing for every new cook keen to learn cooking, many housewives and working mothers am sure. God bless you, your family and your work.

    I have tried your chunda recipe last year and it turned out very well but for some reason this time its got too dense. Its cooled and I havent added the chilli and cumin powders as I was wondering if there is any way I could quick fix the texture of the chunda to slighly runny. Do you think adding some vinegar or making a thin sugar syrup and adding to the entire quantify would help? Awaiting your response. Thank you

    • thanks a lot ash. so nice to read your comment. the chunda recipe has got cooked a too much. just add some water in it and again reheat it, till it comes to the desired consistency. the sugar thread will break down with water, when being heated and go back to the melted stage. thereafter again the sugar syrup will start thickening.

  4. hi Dassana! sharing with u vagharelo chundo ( tempered chundo) recipe. simply begin the above process by heating some oil, mustard seeds,cinnamon sticks,cloves,boria chillies,hing and then adding grated mango & proceed as above.(to avoid crystallisation add a bit of citric acid when lukewarm )& add red chilli pwdr once chundo has cooled completely.i normally prepare the chundo using combination of ladvo ( round shaped)& rajapuri mangoes as ladvo mango tends to release more of its juice.this tempered chundo does not need refrigeraton & stays good for 6-8 mths.tastes great with theekhi/ masala puri & sponge gourd chilas as well

    • thank you meveera. so sweet of you to share the recipe. will give a try if possible this summer as my hands are full. lets see. but have noted it down.

  5. Hi Dassana, I stay in US. And here getting mangoes is a boon, I got a mango which looked green I in color but its little ripened from inside and it tastes bit sweet. Can I make this chunda with that mango or can you suggest me something. Also I don’t have good sunlight here so what can I do.

    Thanks in advance.

    • divya, you can make chunda with this mango. just reduce the sugar a bit. you can even make aam ka panna. aam ka panna can be made both with ripe as well as sour mangoes. either you cook mangoes in a pan or pressure cooker or roast them on direct flame. the cooked version of aam ka panna i have already shared on blog, its very easy to make aam ka panna.

      • Ok thanks dear.

        • Welcome Divya

  6. Can you plz post the method of keeping the glass jar in sun.

    • gauri, i will try to add the glass method. but not sure if i will be able to make chunda this summer. but i will give a try.
