Sweet Mango Chutney With Jaggery: Aam Chunda With Gur Powder/Shakkar



Raw mango chutney is loved by one and all. The only thing that stops me from making this sweet and tangy chutney is its sweet part. Yes, it uses a good amount of sweetness. Ideally mango chutney is made with sugar. But I tend to avoid sugar wherever I can. So I have gone ahead with making the raw mango chutney with jaggery/gur. I had bought jaggery from my home town of Patiala and it came in handy for this easy mango chutney recipe with gur.


Last year, I had tried the mango chutney taking inspiration from Anita Chahal aunty ji.
 I have been trying to avoid making this chutney, since it uses a good amount of sugar/sweetener. Nevertheless I could not stop myself from making mango chutney for the season after Anita Chahal aunty ji posted the raw mango chutney in our food group  Healthy Recipes by Homemakers.

My mouth started to water every time I scrolled down the page and came across aunty ji's chutney. The day she had shared raw mango dip was my Savitri Amavasya fast. So I promised to treat myself to this tasty. tangy chutney after fast.




Ingredients
4 unripe mangoes (1 cup when grated)
1 cup-jaggery (add more or less depending on your sweet tooth)
1/2 tsp- black salt (more or less)
1 tsp- kalonji (nigella seeds)
1 tsp- saunf (fennel seeds)
1 tsp- jeera (cumin seeds)
2 tbsp- water






































































How to make instant aam chunda/chutney

Add water to a 2 or 3-liter pressure cooker.
Next add grated mango and spread as a layer.
Top the layer with a layer of jaggery powder, salt, kalonji, saunf, and jeera.
Pressure cook on a medium-high flame for 7 minutes.
Release the pressure.
Open the lid and mix everything well.
Your instant OPOS aam chutney is ready to be relished.

I have followed OPOS technique, which is the innovation of Rama Krishnan- the OPOS mentor who holds the OPOS trademark. All OPOS recipes use standardized equipment and should not be practiced without going through the OPOS basics.



Here's my previous attempt at mango chutney.


Here I am with this delectable yet simple mango chutney with gur. You have two recipes here. Both are extremely simple recipes to make mango chutney.

Ingredients

3 mangoes (grated)
1 tsp- salt/black salt
6-8 jaggery pieces (as shown in the video )- you may use sugar 1/2 cup instead- depending on the sweetness you want in the chutney - mine was khatti meethi
1/2  tsp- kalonji (nigella seeds)
1/2 tsp- roasted methi dana powder (optional)
1 tsp- jeera/cumin seeds
1/2 tsp- ajwain/carom seeds
1 tsp- vinegar- I have used apple cider vinegar
1/2 tsp- black pepper
1/2 tsp- hing powder (optional)
1 tbsp- sesame seeds/til (or melon seeds)


Procedure


  1. Grate mangoes using a grater.
  2. Collect all dry ingredients except sesame seeds.
  3. Add all these ingredients one by one to the grated mangoes. DO NOT ADD SESAME SEEDS and VINEGAR.
  4. Mix everything and cover.
  5. Keep it covered overnight.
  6. Next day, you will find that mangoes have released water.
  7. Mixing all ingredients with mangoes in the night and keeping them covered will help in the mangoes absorbing all the masala. Remember, we will be adding the gur pieces as well. You may either use gur pieces as is or grate them, as per your wish. If you are using sugar, add it to the mangoes and keep the contents covered.
  8. Transfer the ingredients to a nonstick pan.
  9. Heat on a low flame. Keep stirring intermittently.
  10. Add sesame seeds and keep stirring.
  11. When the chutney is still raw, add vinegar.
  12. Keep mixing
  13. It took me almost 45-50mts to get the desired consistency.
  14. Your sweet 'n tangy mango chutney is ready.

Eggless Cake Without Raising Agents: A No Baking Powder, No Baking Soda Sponge Cake Recipe

When you are able to bake an eggless cake without raising agents, your happiness knows no bounds, right? This is exactly what I am in for today. What started as an experiment has worked out wonders for me.


I was trying to hone my cake baking skills while learning a few baking basics. Then struck this idea of baking a cake without baking powder or baking soda. A loved one is suffering from histamine sensitivity, and these chemical agents trigger urticaria, which gives me goosebumps. So I decided to go the other way round - baking an eggless cake without raising agents.

You need a light flour here - something that would effectively replace maida/all-purpose flour/refined flour/white flour. I remember one dhaba wala telling me once about how they replace maida sometimes - using a mix of jau and rice flour.

So this is exactly what I needed. This has given me one of the simplest yet tastiest cakes. Please do not change the flours, as I am unsure how any other flour would work here. I will…
