How to make mango chutney in instant pot?

The instant pot simplifies the process of making mango chutney to a great extent as you don't need to monitor it all time.

First use the "Saute" mode to temper all the whole spices (dried red chilies, nigella seeds, fennel seeds, cumin seeds) in oil. Then add the cubed mango pieces, sugar, salt, and red chili powder and mix well.

There is no need to add any water in this recipe as the sugar and the moisture in the mangoes will suffice for the right consistency for the chutney.

Mix the contents and close the instant pot lid and put it on "Pressure" mode on high setting for about 4 minutes. This should be enough to melt the sugar and release the juice from raw mangoes and cook it.

After doing a natural release, allow the launji to cool down but do not over mix it as it may make it mushy. There may be some liquid once you open the pot, however, as the launji cools down it will thicken for perfect consistency.
