My Notes:
  • Make the powder a bit coarse so that it adds a nice crunch to the pickle.
  • Adjust spice level according to your preference.
  • Keeps well for 3-4 days in room temperature. May be it wil keep well for 2 more days of refrigerated.Additional oil can be used oil must be boiled and cooled before adding to the pickle to increase the shelf life of the pickle.
  • Choose raw mangoes that are firm.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.
  • This is instant pickle and you need not wait till soaking time.Just make it and serve it.

  8. Pickles are must in my home and I stock at least some instant pickle at home. looks tempting.

  9. do i need to remove the skin of the raw mango

  10. Hi sharmi! All ur pics looks so tempting. I tried this recipe and looks like I added a lot of fenugreek seeds and hence the pickle turned out to be having a bitter taste. Any idea how to fix this??

    1. Try adding little jaggery syrup, let it to boil for 2mins and then switch off....hope that fixes the bitter taste

  11. hey a BIG fan of your recipes...but abt this mango pickle, i have some doubts...usually its seen to add vinegar and achar powder to the pickle, but you havn't added them in ur recipe.why? will the taste be same?and also the mango is been lightly steamed a bit so that it be soft. i refered some achar recipe books and had put carrot achar and fish achar but they were all without gravy, what abt that?why is it so?

    1. Each recipe is different...Yes if you prefer it soft you can steam and add it.
