                                                        Mango pickle


Chopped mangoes-2 cups

Oil- 2 tbsp

1.Wash ,clean and chop the mangoes.Keep them aside.

2.Heat oil in a kadai once it is hot add in the mustard seeds and allow them to splutter.The flame should be kept at maximum.

3.Now add in the whole garlic pods,green chilly pieces & curry leaves.Lower the flame  & saute them nicely.

4.Switch of the flame and into it immediately add in all the powders and saute them nicely so as to get rid of there raw flavor.Be careful not to burn them.

5. Wait till the above mix is cooled completely.It is a must.

6.Once it is completely cooled you can in the chopped mangoes and mix them well.



this is very important because if you add in the mangoes before the mixture is cooled ,mangoes will get cooked in that heat and will release moisture and there is a chance of the  pickle getting spoilt within few days.

7.Do a taste test and  adjust the spices.

8.Pickle is ready to be served.

9.Sterilize a jar by keeping under sun and transfer the pickle into it and keep it airtight.
