Mango Pickle


Mango season is here and this is the right time to enjoy them by making variety dishes out of them.  It is also good that you pickle them, so that you can enjoy Mangoes even when the season is over.  Here is a recipe for ‘Mango Pickle’ which I made few days ago.  The plus point is that, this pickle can be used from day one onwards!  It has a long shelf life.  You can also refrigerate it and use it as and when required.

This pickle goes to Srivalli’s event “Mango Mela”

Mango Mela


Raw Mango pieces with skin- 4 cups

Mustard seeds – 1 tsp

Ginger – 4 ” piece chopped

Garlic – 5 julienne

Curry leaves – 3 sprigs

Kashmiri chilly powder – 5 tbsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Fenugreek/ methi/ uluva powder – 1/2 tsp

Asafoetida/Hing/Kayam powder – 2 pinches

Vinegar – 1/2 cup

Water – 1 1/2 cups

Salt – 5 tsp

Gingelly oil – 1/2 cup



Heat oil in a kadai and splutter mustard seeds.  Add ginger, garlic and curry leaves.  Saute till they become light brown in colour.  Reduce the flame and add the spice powders.  Fry for a second and add water, vinegar and salt.  Let it boil for a minute.  Switch off the fire and add the mango pieces.  Mix well and allow it to cool completely.  Transfer the pickle to a glass jar.  Serve it with any dish of your choice!
