It’s a popular Gujarati spicy sour and sweet pickle. It doesn’t require any cooking. It’s a very easy delicious pickle that goes will with Paratha and thepla. 

Spice Powder 
1 tsp Cumin seeds 
4 Red Dry Chillies
2 Cardamom pods

Take a pan and roast the cumin seeds, let it cool down, coarsely grind the cumin seeds with red chilli and cardamom. 

1 1/2 cup Mango washed, peel and grated 
1 1/2 cup Sugar
Spice powder
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder 
Few strands of Saffron (Optional)

Take the grated mango and add salt and turmeric powder. Keep it aside for 30 minutes. Squeeze the excess water out. Take a clean glass bottle, add the mango, sugar and spice powder and saffron (optional). Mix it. Leave it in the sun for few days. Keep a check. The sugar will dissolve and will cook up with the mango to a one string consistency. Enjoy the chunda with the paratha and thepla .
