Mango Achar/ Pickle

When mangoes are in season my grandma used to
make this pickle. She would make a batch of
mango pickle and it will be finished that day
itself.It was so yummy.we used to have this pickle
with Curd Rice.


Mango - 1 1/2 cups thinly chopped

Red chilli powder - 3 tbs

Mustard seeds-1 tsp

Fenugreek-1/4 tsp

Hing- 1/4 tsp

Sesame Oil- 2/3 cup

Salt-to taste


In a pan , add the mustard seeds,fenugreek

seeds,hing and Sesame oil. When the mustard

seed splutters remove from flame and let it


Meanwhile Chop the mangoes and mix it with red

chilli powder and salt. Mix well.

Add the sesame oil mix to the mangoes and mix

well. Let it sit 2-3 hours before serving.

Refrigerate the remaining mango pickle.


If you like it very hot you can add more red

chilli powder.

If you are health conscious reduce the amount of

sesame oil to 1/3 cup.
