How to make Aam ki Launji(Kairi Ki Launji)
Here, I’ve taken 500 grams of raw mango. Wash & dry these raw mangoes properly. Then peel it’s skin using a peeler. Peel all the raw mangoes nicely. Once you have removed the skins, now you have to chop them. For chopping it, either you can cut from the sides or if the stone is still soft you can just halve it from the centre.
You have to cut the raw mango into long strips. after removing the stone, I’m cutting long strips from raw mango.Don’t slice the strips too thin, make them slightly thicker otherwise all the strips will dissolve in the launji. So I’ve sliced the raw mango. Cut all your raw mango & keep it aside.
Make The Launji
Now heat a wok or a pan on high flame. Now add 2 tbsp oil to it & let the oil heat up as well. Now to this add 1 tbsp cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp carom seeds, 1 tsp fennel seeds, 1 tsp onion seeds, 1 tsp asafoetida,1 tsp mustard seeds,& add 1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds.
Stir all the spices & let them crackle well in the oil especially like mustard seeds & cumin should crackle nicely. After that add the raw mango that we sliced earlier. Stir well after adding the raw mango & cook it on medium flame for about 1-2 minutes. Don’t cook the raw mango for too long, otherwise it can become mushy very soon in the beginning.
Cook it for 1-2 minutes. Then add 1 cup water to it. 1/2 tsp salt, 2 tsp Kashmiri red chilli powder, & add a pinch of garam masala, this is completely optional. & stir it nicely. After stirring, cover it with a lid & cook it on medium low flame for 2-3 minutes.
We don’t have to cook the raw mangoes completely here. Just let them soften slightly. So cover it & cook the raw mangoes for 2-3 minutes. It’s been 2-3 minutes, remove the lid, & stir it nicely. Now our raw mangoes are cooked. And raw mango has softened. At this stage add 1 cup or 200 grams of jaggery.
Stir well after adding the jaggery. I have chopped the jaggery so chop or grate it well. So that the jaggery melts easily. You have to melt the jaggery nicely. Once the jaggery has melted, then you have to cook it until it thickens. So keep cooking it properly. It could take 5-6 minutes. The jaggery will cook nicely & thicken slightly,
The flavours of raw mango, jaggery & the flavour of spices will assimilate together, & will result in a sweet & sour & spicy Launji.
Now it’s been 5-6 minutes, At this stage, taste for seasoning. We will add black salt & chaat masala still, so accordingly adjust the salt. Along with it 1/4th tsp black salt, & add 1/4th tsp chaat masala, & stir it nicely.
Now it has reached a perfect consistency & our Aam ki Launji is ready. At this stage, you have to turn the flame off
& cool down the Aam ki Launji. Once cooled down, it will thicken even further. it has thickened further. Our Aam ki Launji is ready.
You can store it in a clean, airtight, glass bottle. If storing outside the refrigerator, it can stay good for at least 2-3 weeks. Inside the refrigerator, it will stay good for more than 2-3 months too as it is cooked nicely & has a lot of jaggery, raw mango & other spices. It won’t spoil if you store it properly.
