Mango Pickle.. This was my first attempt to make mango pickle at home and it turn out to be very delicious and perfect. It is not like I don't know to make pickles I use to help my mother alot to make pickles every time and she makes the best pickles in the world. It has been a 4 years I dint help her and I also use to buy pickles from market or get it from my mom's place, that's how I never got a chance to make at home. I made this in very small batch to see how it will come but I must say it taste very similar..
2 large raw mango
1tsp cumin seeds
1/4tsp fenugreek seeds
1/4tsp black pepper corn
1/4tsp coriander seeds
5 dry red chilli
10 curry leafs
2tsp red chilli powder
1/2tsp yellow mustard seeds
10 garlic pods (crushed)
Salt to taste.
Cut the raw mango in to medium chunks and keep it aside.
Dry roast the cumin, fenugreek, black pepper, coriander seeds, curry leafs and dry red chilli and grind to a coarse powder.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan, add garlic, mustard, and red chilli powder and fry on a low flame for 1 minute.
Then add the grounded powder and fry for another 1 to 2 minutes, Switch off the flame and allow the pickle masala to cool.
Then add salt and raw mango and give a good mix and transfer it to jar and keep in the sun light every day..
Pickle is ready. You can start eating this pickle after 2 to 3 days.
