You know summers are on your door when you start seeing the green tart raw mangoes in the market. Growing up, this would mean having raw mango slices with little chili powder as a snack, or panna – the perfect drink for summer heat, or eating the launji with hot parathas. Funny how certain foods can elicit feelings of nostalgia and bring a smile to your face just by talking about them?

I know ripe sweet mangoes steal everyone’s hearts, well, its the national fruit of India for a reason. That’s why these eggless mango cupcakes are so popular. But did you know raw mangoes have as much Vitamin C as three oranges or nine lemons? They also aid digestion, prevent dehydration, and are an excellent source of antioxidants. And of course who can miss the tangy sweet taste! I don’t think I need to sell the raw mangoes anymore.

This Aam Launji (Raw Mango Chutney) can be stored up to 15 days in the refrigerator. The flavours develop better when cooked and kept covered for few hours.
