Raw Mango chutney is first thing that I make when summers arrive. Belonging to a family of achar-chutney lovers, I cant be short of these accompaniments. fan of dips and chutneys.
A combo of parantha and Aam ki Launji (Raw mango chutney) is awesome!! Practically, all my life I had standard breakfast of Namak Ajwain paratha.
Well, to me its not so long I get vegetables, chutneys, achars of my choice. Though now I make different breakfasts but paratha is my weakness. Yesterday, I had paratha with Amla Achar and Karele after a long time and it was superb.
Now that mango season is almost gone, this was my last batch of Launji and I got late in posting it too.
Being a rich source of Vitamin C , calcium and magnesium, raw mango is a healthy choice. Its rich in Niacin which helps in maintaining heart health too.
A recipe that meets both taste and health is always my preferred one. Some believe that achars and chutneys are not healthy.
I beg to differ.
I was never a fan of coriander leaves and avoided them. Knowing that its nutrient-rich, finally I decided to have it in small portions. So, I avoid leaf but I can now have it in the form of chutney.
Mix leaves of coriander, pudina (Mint), add spices, curd and grind to a thick paste..As far as achars are concerned, having them daily in all meals is something I would not do.
But having achar once a week is perfectly fine specially teaming it with Pulao or khichdi. We all know that it has extra salt and fat that should be avoided.
Eating in moderation is the key to a healthy lifestyle. Leaving a type of food wont boost your immunity as your body wont adjust to changes. Its similar to the concept of physical exercises. If I skip yoga for 10 days, my muscles would just not be co-operative the 11 th day!!
Enjoy while eating food and lets not make it a forbidden fruit to munch more on unhealthy snacks!!
