Summer is the season of mangoes – Raw or Ripe mangoes.
Today I am sharing “Aam Ki Lauji or Raw Green Mango Lauji”. It is made with raw green mango with Gur or jaggery and spices. Seasoned with Panch Phoron adds amazing flavor to this chutney.
Panch Phoron (also called panch phoran or paanch phoron) literally means “five spices.” It is a spice blend commonly used in Eastern India and Bangladesh and consists of the following seeds: Cumin, Brown Mustard, Fenugreek, Nigella, and Fennel.
It’s very easy to make. It has a sweet and sour taste of raw mango. It can be stored for 2 months in the refrigerator. It can be served with paratha, poori or even with chaat.
