I dont very much like pickles, except when they are sweet. I like to eat mangoes ripe, as they are. And believe, they taste the best that way. I also believe pickles are very unhealthy, :( , with all the unhealthy salt, oil, chillies, vinegar added to it.
But my family definitely love them. So I have no other go, but to make them.
This is a very simple pickle & one that can be made if you are in a hurry. We got some awesome "Moovandan" mangoes from our mango tree this year. Some were a little ripe and some were more than raw. The little sweetness added to the taste.
Ginger crushed 3 tbsp
Garlic crushed 3 tbsp
Garlic pods 15
Green chillies 6
Mustard seeds 3/4 tsp
Fenugreek seeds 1/2 tsp
Curry leaves 2 springs
Coconut Oil -10tbsp (add more if required.)
Pickle Powder 4 tbsp
Wash mangoes, peel them and cut them into smaller pieces.
In a pan add oil, splutter fenugreek seeds & then mustard seeds.
Saute crushed garlic, ginger, crushed green chillies & curry leaves.
When they are very well sauted (almost brownish), add pickle powder and saute
until raw smell is gone.
Now add vinegar and let it boil for some time. Add salt.
Now add mango pieces & saute.
Saute and let it get cooked in simmer.
Enjoy with plain rice, Kanji, chapatis, Biriyani, whatever you choose..
Since this post is also mango again, shall I send it to the Mango event.
