Mango Chundo

As kids,whenever my Bombay aunty used to visit us to Mangalore she would get us Mango chundo,Amla Murabba,Dry Amla and other goodies of Maharashtra.Most commonly known as Mango Chunda,it is a mango preserve which can be stored for nearly a year which has a sweet,sour and spicy taste.Gujrathi’s still relish it with Methi thepla..I found this recipe in Divya’s blog and it sounded easy since it was prepared in a microwave.But I goofed up with the recipe,but still moved on and succeeded.She suggested to do the sugar syrup separately and mix it at a later stage but I mixed the sugar with the grated mango accidentally but the result was thumbs up.Again,this is prepared with the raw mangoes.I had a stock of our factory mangoes  but when I decided to prepare this,I found that the mangoes were ripening .Then Santoshi came to my rescue and gave me ‘Thothapuri’ Mango and I went ahead with the same.
