Manga Achar/ Mango Pickle

Manga Achar/ Mango Pickle

Green mango pickle is a delicious and spicy condiment. We rarely get raw mangoes here and few weeks back , I was so glad to come across raw mangoes in our grocery store. I have already shared pickle recipes with mango like Kerala kadumanga/mango pickle and Andhra mango pickle/ aavakaya. This mango pickle is spicy,sweet and sour. 

Green Mango cubes- 3 cup
Garlic- 15- 20 pods
Ginger- 2 inch thick piece
Dates- 8-10
Chilly powder- 4-5 tbs
(or according to your spice tolerance)
Fenugreek powder- 1 1/2 tsp
Asafoetida-  1 tsp
Salt- to taste
Sugar- 1/2 tsp
Gingerly oil- 1/2 cup
Mustard seeds- 1/3 tsp
Vinegar- 1/2 cup

Cut mangoes into cubes. Sprinkle salt, cover and leave it in room temperature for 4-6 hours.

Soak dates in half of the vinegar. After about an hour make it into a paste.

Using a mortal and pastel crush ginger and garlic (around 10-15) into a course mixture. Slice the rest of the garlic.

Heat oil in  pan and add mustard seeds. When they splutter add sliced garlic and the  crushed ginger and garlic. Saute till raw flavor disappears.
Switch off the flame and add the chilly powder, fenugreek powder,asafoetida,sugar and salt as needed. Add the dates paste and mix well.Return to the stove and heat in low flame for a minute. Switch off the flame and add the chopped mangoes and left over vinegar.
Allow to cool down and then store in air tight bottle.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy!
