Oh so delicious! Chundo looks so tempting. I'm yet to make this year's mango pickle

Aam chundo is my favorite and I loved it once I had it at my Gujju friend's house.Love your pictures Nalini.

it looks like the consistency of orange marmalade - like a spiced mango jam I wouldn't mind just having this on toast or possibly with some paneer also :)

Love the consistency.. so tasty and delicious.
