Mango Pickle


Call it a condiment, a side or an accompaniment, Mango Pickle is always loved for the sour spicy burst.  Mango by itself I know is also a favourite - for savoury dishes (pepper mango curry), for desserts (mango gula Melaka, mango cheesecake & mango sticky rice) and even for a mocktail (mango 7-up mocktail).  As always, nothing like mango chutney, a must for an Indian meal. A chutney, well, can last for a few days only when stored in the fridge. Mango pickle on the hand is like forever, I mean you can make in advance and keep in the fridge. In fact, once the vinaigrette has soaked in the mango, the taste is truly unbelievable. 

Ingredients
1 semi/unripe mango - remove seed and cubed.
2 tbsp gingerly oil
1/2 tbsp plain chilli powder
1 tsp black mustard seeds
1/4 tsp fenugreek seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric/kunyit
A pinch of asafetida powder
1/2 cup vinegar (more of less depending on taste)
1/2 tbsp sugar (or as needed but you need quite a bit to balance up the taste)
3-4 sprigs curry leaves
Salt for taste

Method
In the heated oil, splatter mustard seeds.
Add chilli and turmeric powder.
Quickly stir and add all the other ingredients.
Stir and cook mango to a texture or crunch you prefer.
Remove,cool down, pack in a bottle and store in fridge.

  6. This pickled mango is very delicious if eat it with fried sardines or ikan kembung. I had it for dinner just now. A friend gave me pickled mango and it really yummy to go with fried fish. However my pickled mango is just plain with some vinegar, sugar and chili padi.

  11. I used to like calling myself the 'Home Economist' :) Recipe looks good, albeit I've never tried pickled mangoes before but it sounds like a fusion of spicy, sour and sweet flavors from the recipe.

  16. The grannies certainly had the practical culinary wisdom and knew the nuances so well. I have never tried mango pickle of this version. The curry leaves addition has certainly tempted me into trying it...only that I need to wait for the 'unripe mango' season!

  27. Hello!

    I love mangos! Growing up in Brazil we had some mango trees in our backyard, so good to climb on them and had a fruit right on the spot.

    Nonetheless, I've never had a mango pickle, and I think it's time to try it, the recipe seems delicious.
