Aam ki launji recipe

Aam ki launji is a sweet and spicy mango chutney which belongs to the Indian cuisine. This yummy recipe is from Rajasthan and is famous throughout the Country. This launji is made with raw mangoes and jaggery and tastes best with parathas. Launji is my all time favorite recipe and is a must try for all the viewers out there. Every state has its own version of launji, some states use jaggery whereas others use sugar on the other hand some states use a lot of spices whereas others simply use salt and chilli powder. This launji recipe was taught to me by my nani maa who is a pro at cooking punjabi Or North Indian cuisine. So basically it is a punjabi version of launji.
