Green Mango Pickle

Posted by Annita on March 20, 2006

Also I’ve bought a big fresh green mango on my weekend shopping,and I pickled it.This Mango Pickle ,a recipe from my mom-in-law is Deepu’s favorite of all the pickles.I am not sure whether you can call it a pickle,bcoz it doesn’t contain vinegar in it.They usually call it Mango Curry,but I call it pickle because of its appearence.As I’ve not used any preservatives or acid in this recipe, i cannot help you with its long term storage use .Normally I keep it in refrigerator and it’ll be over within a month.
Fresh Green Mango cut into small bite- sized pieces -1
Salt – as needed
Kashmiri Red Chilli Powder /Paprika- 3 tsp(If you are using normal red chilli powder use only 2 tsp)
Fenugreek powder – 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida -1/2 tsp
Gingelly oil (Nallenna)-1/2 cup
(Use any oil of your choice ,if you don’t have gingelly oil with you..I’ve used Corn oil in this recipe)
Mix together salt,red chilli powder and mango pieces well and keep aside for 1 hr.Then add fenugreek powder and asafoetida into it and mix well.

Cut Mangoes Pieces mixed with salt & chilly powder

Heat oil in a pan for 5 mts in medium heat.(Do not burn the oil) .When the oil is cooled, add it into mango pieces and again mix well.Bottle it and store in refrigerator.

Note:-Always store the pickle in a moisture free container and do not use any wet spoons inside pickle jar.Life of a pickle can be increased by this.

    Hi Annita..I call this blog torture! So that is not kadukumanga? That looks lovely! I will try to get mangoes and whip that up.

    Thanks Gini..Its not Kadukumanga ..It has a different recipe i guess..Do try it out..Its quite simple.The only time consuming part is cutting the mango.

Please let me know if you have any ideas. thankyou, I really miss my amma’s pickles but here in CA its so hard to find a good indian grocery store too. I love your recipes and the links you have on your website, they are so helpful and tempting with all wonderful pics. Anyways, i’ll be checking in to see if you have any thoughts on my question.
