How to Make Aam ki Launji | कैरी की खट्टी मीठी लौंजी | Khatti Meethi Keri Ki Launji | Summer Recipes

Yummm is the only word I have for this lip smacking chutney Recipe. This Traditional Sweet & Sour Raw Mango Chutney, also known as kachhe aam ki launji, is from the ancient Rajasthani Cuisine. The word Launji come from Sanskrit & means a chutney or a pickle prepared with the raw mango or raw mango skin.

There is insufficient rainfall and scarcity of seasonal vegetables in Rajasthan. Due to this, Rajasthani cuisine enjoys unique but flavorful recipes like lehsun ki chutney & a lot of other pickles. Such unconventional condiments were the need of the hour to replace the vegetables. This Rajasthani Keri ki Launji is one such unique recipe.

The tough climate & the non-availability of ingredients has a great influence on the unique taste and creativity of these recipes. Rajasthan is famous for the use of garlic and onion. This is the most Authentic Kairi Ki Launji Recipe in Hindi. You can make this at home with the simplest of spices available. This Mango Launji does not use garlic or onion. It is also a good Jain Recipe. Scarcity of the rainfall led to the unique method of preparation, because of which these dishes can be stored for a long period of time. It was more of a necessity than a choice.

There are a lot of variations to this recipe. Some variations do add to the taste and this cannot be denied. However, this is a the most authentic and simplest way of preparing the Kairi ki launji.
