Grated Mango Pickle / Instant Mango Pickle

  As season of mangoes are in peak , it is the perfect time to make delicious pickles. We love pickles with our curd rice .

  For this month’s Shhhh secretly cooking I was paired with Mayuri Patel of Mayuri’s Jikoni . She was one who asked me whether I was interested in joining the group . I am happy with the ingredients she gave – Fenugreek  and oil along with the common ingredient Mango .

    Instant Mango pickle is the quick and delicious pickle. I made it with a mango and finished in two days.

Requirements :

1 large Raw Mango
1 Tbs Red chilli powder
¼ tsp Turmeric powder ( optional )
6 tbs Sesame oil
a pinch of asafoetida
1 tsp Salt
¼ tsp Mustard seeds + ¼ tsp for tempering
¼ tsp Fenugreek Seeds

Method :

Wash and pat dry the mango. Peel off the skin if don’t want to use.

I grated the mango along with the skin.

Dry roast fenugreek and mustard seeds separately and grind into a coarse powder.

Heat two tbsp of sesame oil in a pan , add the asafoetida and mustard seeds. When they splutter , add the grated mango and sauté.
After few minutes , the mango pieces change into transparent. Add in the chilli powder and salt.

Continue sautéing till the oil oozes out , add in the ground powder and give a quick stir along with the remaining oil.

Take off flame and let it cool and store in sterile jars.
Grated mango pickle are ready to serve.

Serve with curd rice , lemon rice , Idli , Dosa or roti.

  1. Sharanya, this seems like an easy recipe. I'm going to try this recipe as it doesn't involve drying the mango in the sun.
