Ambgoori launji | sweet and sour mango chutney
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.

There's nothing more inviting than hot South Indian breakfast: strong filter coffee, piping hot drumstick sambher with little bits of coconut, tasty coconut chutney gunpowder and golden-crisp Dosa! I love dosas and in fact I'm planning to make one today in breakfast. And it's not just because they taste divine but also because they're really fun to make: Right from grinding down the urad dal and rice, letting the white stuff ferment to running your ladle through the batter checking for lumps, it's almost therapeutic. After your pour the batter down a hot sizzling pan, even the wait to figure whether the dosa will stick or not is a delicious feeling....Dosa with healthy twist will make this delicious treat more interesting.
