Sweet Mango Pickle

Pickle is one of the most interesting and famous dish in India. Thanks to all grannies who found it for us. :) There are a lot of yummy varieties in it. Curd rice with pickle is the most heavenly combination I cherish always.

Raw mango is the secret ingredient for lots of pickles. This is one of such amazingly interesting pickle and sure would kids love this because of its jammy consistency and sweetness.


Raw Mango - 1
Jaggery - 2 tbsp

Chilly powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp
Curry leaves


Dice mango into medium sized pieces. In a pan take a spoon of oil and crackle mustard and curry leaves. Now put the mangoes into it and pour some water for it to get cooked. Close the pan with a lid and leave it alone for 5 min. Once the mango gets cooked, add chilly powder, jaggery and salt to it and mix well. Allow it to cook for another 5 min. Sweet and sour mango pickle is ready to eat. :) You can preserve this pickle in the refrigerator for a week.

This pickle goes well with roti and curd rice too. :)

Note: To make this pickle choose mangoes with thin outer skin so that its easy to bite and enjoy.
