Kacche Aam ki Launji or Raw mango sabzi is a tasty sabzi that is made with raw mangoes. Aam ki sabzi like mango pickle spices up any meal and tastes best with Poori and Paratha.
It’s officially mango season in India and we are having our fill of juicy mangoes in all varieties. While mangoes are great raw mangoes are even better and I just love them. There are many names for raw mangoes, Kairi, Kaccha Aam, Ambi are the popular ones in North India.
This is also known as kacche Aam ki launji in Rajasthan and can be made in advance because it stays well in the fridge for at least a week. You can serve this with rice and curry meal to add more flavor or any other meal to jazz it up. I often add few pieces of aam ki sabzi to the grilled sandwiches to add a sweet and tangy flavor.
This one is my Mother’s recipe of quick Aam ki sabzi which is a great balance of sweet and sour taste. Raw mango is quite tart in taste so to balance it out some sort of sweetness is added.
In authentic recipe gud/jaggery is used but if you do not have that you can add plain white/brown sugar. I added organic liquid jaggery that I bought from recent Bangalore trip.
Because I got a large supply fresh raw organic mangoes from a friend’s Mango Orchard so I am experimenting with many new mango dishes. Thank you all of you from Instagram who suggested me so many new ideas using raw mangoes.
This recipe is a tried and testedAam ki launji recipe from my Mom. From the time I remember no meal in our home was complete without accompaniments 10 types of pickles, papad, Chutneys …there was always something to spice it up.
Towards the start of summers when last year’s Mango pickle was finished and mom was making fresh she always made this sweet and sour raw mango launji which we loved with our desi ghee crispy parathas!
I miss those days and simple food we had back then, so here it goes …cheers to the memories and still trying to keep it simple 😍😍
