Mango Launji Recipe!


Hello Friends! Every heard of Mango Launji? I remember this dish from my childhood, my mom used to prepare this. This is a rather unusual dish, not commonly known to people. It’s a kind of chutney that can be eaten with Bread/Poori/Paranthas. Its has a mixed sweet and sour taste and is really tasty to eat. I wanted to share this earlier but I didn’t know what is this called even though I have been making this since forever. I just found out its name so here’s the Launji recipe for you.
