Instant Sweet Mango Pickle Recipe (with jaggery)

Instant Sweet Mango Pickle Recipe
I am not very fond of pickles and one of the very few pickles I relish are the sweet mango pickle and garlic thokku.I am always sweet toothed and that carries in my taste for pickles too :) Amma make mango thokku, and instant mango pickle both sweet and the spicy versions. I love this sweet version more...I even eat it as such but it is best when served with curd rice, unbeatable combo I can say!

My Notes:

  • The pickle stays well for 2 days in room temperature and in total upto 4 days if refrigerated.Amma said if more oil floats on top (as for any pickle) it increases shelf life so may be add 1/4 cup oil if you want more shelf life.Always use clean spoon everytime. Also dont keep eversilver spoon immersed in the pickle, the pickle will get spoiled easily.
  • Grinding to a coarse powder gives the pickle a nice crunch while eating.
  • This is instant pickle and you need not wait till soaking time.Just make it and serve it. The mangoes get half cooked in jaggery syrup so it is soft.
  • Add spice and sweetness according to your taste.
