My mother’s famous Chundo

Coming from a Gujarati family I have had Chundo since childhood. I remember every year in summer mummy used to make at least a bottle of it. When I moved to hostel she used to give me a bottle packed of this Chondo. We typically have it with Theplas, it tastes tooo good with it. I also have it sometimes with Handvo. Every household have different version of it. Many of our friends who come home have always asked to pack a little for them. Also whenever I pack it for our tiffin our office friends have always loved it and asked for the recipe. So finally asked my mom to add to the collection.
