Kacche Aam Ki Meethi  Launji is an instant sweet and sour relish or pickle made by raw mangoes and jaggery. You can say khatta-meetha achar of mangoes. This recipe is a must make when raw mangoes are in season. You can make a big batch and refrigerate for a 2-3 weeks and keep enjoying your meals. This is very quick recipe.

Along with mangoes and jaggery, always I use some Indian spices such as sauf, jeera and  kalonji (nigella seeds) and whole red chilli to make this dish more tasty.

There are different recipes to make this chutney in each household and with a little difference here and there, the taste changes slightly, making it a family special.

Serve with roti, palin paratha or any type of stuff paratha.
