Easy Mango Pickle





Ingredients: 

1. Mango - 3, chopped into small pieces
2. Red chilli powder - 1 tsp (for the marinade) + 1 tsp
3. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp (for the marinade)+ 1/2 tsp 
4. Distilled white vinegar (optional - only necessary if the mangoes are not sour) - 2 tbsp
5. Salt - As desired 
6. Gingelly oil (Nallenna or sesame oil) - 2 tbsp
7. Garlic - finely chopped, 7-8 cloves
8. Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
9. Curry leaves - 1 sprig
10. Asafoetida - 1 pinch 

Preparation: 

1. Marinate the mango pieces in ingredients 2-5 about 4-5 hours, preferably overnight. 
2. Heat the oil in a pan. Make sure the heat is medium-low as gingelly oil smokes quickly. Splutter mustard seeds. Add the chopped garlic. Add the red chilli, turmeric powder and mix well.
3. Once the raw smell goes away add the marinated mango pieces, curry leaves and mix. 
4. Cook on medium low until the mango pieces are cooked. 
5. Add the asafoetida, mix and remove from heat. 
6. Transfer to a jar once fully cool. 

Enjoy! :D
