1 tsp Cumin seeds 
4 Red Dry Chillies
2 Cardamom pods

Chunda 
Ingredients 
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)

Method 
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 .
