Preparation of Mango pickle

  1. Peel the skin of mangoes and cut them into small pieces.
  2. In a bowl mix the sliced mangoes, salt and keep it overnight.
  3. On the next day, add garlic and green chillies to it.
  4. In a pan add coconut oil, splutter the mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  5. Add ginger to the pan and saute them till raw smell goes and reduce the flame to low.
  6. Then add Red Chilly powder, Turmeric powder, Fenugreek powder, Asafoetida powder saute for 2 minutes (don’t overheat).

  • Use only clean dry spoon to take the pickle. It will prevent fungal growth in the jar.
  • Tightly close the lid after each use. 
  • Don’t use steel jar for storing ,because there will be reaction between the salt and the steel.
  • If you are using pickle powder, after the step 4, add pickle powder, warm it and saute. Skip to step 8 and continue.
