Khatti meethi launji - sweet raw mango chutney is a yummy dip. Summer was a season where all trees in our garden were laden with mangoes.Mango was always my favorite fruit.Its full of vitamins and so versatile.Also it was in abundance all across township.Thus, came out the yummy recipes.We were in Vizag, so Telugu aunties would send us plates of Pulihora & mango rice.Green mango chutney is full of taste.Tangy,sweet and sour.Full of umami.
Sweets and pickle recipes we made was north Indian style were shared with the neighbors.
All of us enjoyed each others' cuisine.
If you wanted to have a cooler,mango crush or panna was always in the fridge. Mango & chickpea pickle is a traditional recipe from my MIL's kitchen.One of the best sour pickles I have had are this and jackfruit one.Chunda and sweet mango pickle was always a favourite.Truly mum definitely made us foodies inspite of her being a working mum.
Launji is perfect with channa masala or chole bhature. It also reminds me of mum always.She would make this every summer. Also, every time I would go back to insipid hostel food. You can also use this dip in wraps,eat it with any spicy curry or samosa or just have a spoonful.
