Ambgoori launji is interesting ....I gave it this name because in this chutney grapes (angoor) are cooked with raw mangoes( Ambi ) so it is Ambgoori....
Raw mangoes are good for health and contain vital vitamins and minerals. These tasty green fruits are good to be eaten in the summer season and can make a perfect recipe for the taste. And we all know the health benefits of grapes. Like other berries, grapes are highly nutritious and valuable with plenty of curative agents. It has high content of vitamins A, B1, B2, B6 and C. It also contains many health-promoting flavonoids. The deeper the color of the grapes, the richer the flavonoids.
Mixture of these two is a bundle of health.
Bunch of sweet & sour grapes was lying in my fridge for long and I was looking for some opportunity to consume them, when my daughter who is very fond of raw mangoes bought raw mangoes I quickly thought for this recipe ....I was not sure how it will taste..but it came out tastier than the regular launji ....amazed to see the results I thought I must share it with you all..
