Instant Mango Pickle

I was so happy to see some fresh raw mangoes which was labeled pickle mangoes, in the Indian store. I wanted to make instant mango pickle, ever since i saw sig's 'young green mango pickle'. So here is how i made instant mango pickle.


1 big - Fresh green raw mango
5 to 6 flakes- Garlic, sliced
1 tbsp - Red chili powder
1/4 tsp - Hing powder / Asafoetida
1/4 tsp - Fenugreek powder
Salt to taste
Sesame oil


1/2 tsp - Mustard seeds


1 ) Cut mango with skin on, into small pieces.

2 ) Heat 2 tbsp oil. Keep the heat low, once the oil has warmed up. Add garlic and just fry lightly. Don't brown it. Then on low heat, add red chili powder, hing and fenugreek powder. Stir and fry for a second. Take off the stove and pour on the cut mango pieces. Add salt to taste and mix well with mango pieces.

3 ) Heat 1 tbsp more oil and pop mustard seeds. Pour this on pickle and mix in. Cool and transfer to a glass or ceramic jar.You can warm little more oil and pour on top of the jar, if you want to store this for long time. Keep in room temperature for a day, then store in fridge.

Serve pickle with rice, chapati and enjoy this unique taste of raw mango with spices.
