Raw Mango Pickle

These type of Pickles are easily prepared with any kind of vegetables  like Cauliflower,Carrot,Cabbage,Indian Cucumber,Gherkins etc.Eventhough  the vegetable is different ,preparing method is same.I like this variation of Pickles very much along with Hot rice.

So ,I learned this recipe from my mother ,while our talkings going on we both discussed about the Lunch Menu of the day.She explained me this Raw mango Pickle.I was tempted to eat ,but dont know exactly .By knowing from my Mom today I am  able to try this and posting it today for all of you.

  • Raw Mango/Pulla Maamidikaya-1 no
  • Red chillipowder-1tbsp
  • Salt to taste
  • Fenugreek Powder-1/2 tsp (adding more makes bitter taste)

  • Red Chillies-3 no
  • Mustard seeds-1/2tsp
  • Cumin seeds-1/2tsp
  • Hing/Asafoetida- a pinch
  • Curryleaves -few (optional)
  • Clean the raw Mango and make it dry with any cloth .
  • Chop the mango with very small pieces along with the skin.(It tastes good with the skin)

  • Finally add the Hing.
  • Now mix these seasoning to the Mango mixture and mix well.You get nice aroma at this stage while mixing it.
  • Let it be aside for atleast 1 or two hours by covering it
  • Later you can open and transfer it to an air-tigh container.
  • Serve this along with hot rice with a spoonful of Ghee.
  • You can also serve it by preparing in the morning and having it for the Night.It makes the mango to absorb all the ingredients and makes tastier.
  • You can also prepare the Mustard and Fenugreek powder in the home by dry roast the Fenugreek seeds and let it cool and powder it.
  • Mustard seeds are directly powdered in the Mixyjar without any roasting.
