Gujarati Pickles

Methia KeriMethia Keri 

I still remember the large porcelain jars of Methia Keri and Golkeri that would arrive every summer from my nani’s home. It tastes great with khakhras, theplas and parathas! Also, the arrival of summers brings back memories of me grating raw mangoes with my granny which are then turned into authentic pickles like Chundo.

Quick Mango ChundaQuick Mango Chunda

The traditional preparation of chunda involves dissolving sugar till the pickle reaches a clear syrupy consistency and the mango shreds are translucent. This Quick Mango Chunda is easy to prepare as all the ingredients are combined and cooked in a pan.

Also, you can enhance the taste by adding onions to make this Kaanda Aur Kairi ka Choonda which can be relished with masala puri or parathas. Gujarati famous breakfast FafdaJalebi is surely incomplete without Raiwala Marcha and Kacha Papaya Sambharo. Sambhaar is a spice mix that is readily available in most Gujarati households. Kaachi Keri No Sambhaar is a no-fuss, easy to make pickle made by just mixing cut raw mangoes with oil and sambhaar powder.
