Pickle with Mango Pieces


In Telugu we call it as “Maamidi Mukkala Pacchadi”. This is one easy and instant pickle. I have learned this pickle from my sister R.

I used:
  • 1 raw Mango
  • 1 ½ tsp Fenugreek Seeds (Menthulu)
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds (Avaalu)
  • 2 tsp Red Chili Powder (or According to taste)
  • Salt to taste
  • 2 tbsp Oil (Sesame Oil will be good) (I used Olive Oil)

Prepare like this:

Wash the mango well and wipe with a paper towel, because the pickle would be spoiled if it were wet. Then chop it into tiny pieces. Don’t peel the skin off, because mango pickle tastes so good with the skin. Keep aside in a bowl.

In a small pan heat 1 tsp of oil and add the mustard seeds. When they splutter, add the fenugreek seeds and fry till they turn golden brown. Be careful not to burn them. Take off from the flame and let it cool.

Meanwhile, add salt and red chili powder to the mango pieces and mix well with a spoon. Pour the rest of the oil on the pieces and mix well.

When the mustard and fenugreek seeds become cold, powder them into a fine powder. It is all right if it is little coarse. Add this powder to the mango pieces and mix well.

Let the pickle stand for one hour, so that the mango pieces absorb the essence of the fenugreek and the mustard seeds. Store it in a cool place. Serve this pickle with hot rice.

Hello. I am new to Indian cooking -- I've only made chole, a lemon pickle, and paneer so far -- and I have a question about your mouth-watering pickle: if I were to triple the recipe, using 3 mangoes instead of 1, would I have to triple the amount of oil as well?

Thanks!!

Hi Ma Jie,

Thanks for visiting my blog and thanks for your interest in Indian cooking. Reg. your question: Yes, you need to triple the amount of oil, say for 3 mangoes use 6 tbsp oil. Mango pickle need more oil so that the pieces absorb the essence very well. Hope this helps. Please let me know if still confused. Thanks again.
