Mango,Ginger,Garlic and Green Chilli pickle.


  1.   Raw Mango – 200 gms.
  2. Garlic paste – 2 tbsp.
  3. Ginger paste – 2 tbsp.
  4.  Green Chilly – 100 gms.
  5.  Salt – according to taste.
  6.  Black salt – a pinch.
  7. Yellow mustard powder – 2 tbsp.
  8. Mustard powder – 2 tbsp.
  9.  Red Chilli Powder – 1 tbsp.
  10.  Turmeric Powder – 1 and 1/2 tsp.
  11.  Synthetic Vinegar – 3 tbsp.
  12. Indian five spice or Paanch Phoran{made of cumin,brown mustard,fenugreek,nigella and fennel} – 1 tsp.
  13.  Asafoetida or hing – A pinch.


Step 1 – Wash and pat dry the mangoes.

Step 2 – Peel the skin and cut the mango in cubes.

Step 3 – I have personally here made the pickle using cut mangoes but alternately we can grate them and make grated style pickle using the same method.

Step 4 – Then take given amounts of ginger ,garlic and green chilly paste and grind them separately .

Step 5 – Take your mangoes and put them in a bowl ,add salt,black salt,turmeric powder,red chilli powder,yellow mustard powder to it.

Step 6 – Next take a wok and add mustard oil to it.

Step 7 – Heat the oil and add tempering of paanchphoran ,asafoetida to it and then add the coarsely grounded ginger ,garlic and green chilli paste.

Step 8 – Fry them a bit.

Step 9 – Now to the pan add the bowl of mangoes and give all a good mix.

Step 10 – When mixture of pickle gets cooled add some synthetic vinegar to it.

After storing the pickle in a jar and showing it a good amount of sunlight the pickle gets ready to be used and eaten.

Note points:-1. Take note of the fact that if mustard powder is put on heat and cooked it will turn bitter in taste.

2. Synthetic vinegar is added to pickles to stop their decay.

3.Pickles should not come in contact with water as it can lead to their rotting.

4.Keep the pickle in airtight jars and store it in shade for five days. In the meantime keep on stirring the pickle. And put pickle in sunlight keeping the lid of pickle closed. The reason for this is that if we keep the pickle jar open ,juices will dry leaving a solid residue behind which we do not want. So to avoid this from happening the above given point has to be noted.
