Kaduku Manga Achar / Pickled Mango

Kanji, payar and manga achar, (rice gruel, green grams sauteed and pickled mango) this used to be a traditional supper in most homes in Kerala. Thinking of mangoes make my mouth water and when its pickled even more.

Here is my attempt at making some pickle at home because the store bought ones are loaded with salt and whatever other preservatives you can think of. I hope you will enjoy this homemade pickle.

Ingredients:
Mango - 1 Large
Mustard - 1 Tspn
Ginger - 1 Tbspn chopped fine
Garlic - 1 Tbspn chopped fine
Curry leaves - 1 sprig
Green Chili - 6 nos chopped
Fenugreek - 1/8 tspn
Asafoetida -1/4 tspn (add less if you don't like its flavor too much)
Salt - to taste
Turmeric Powder - 1/8 tspn
Chili Powder - 2 Tbspn
Gingely oil-2 Tbspn
Vinegar-1/2 cup

Method:

There are many ways to pickle. One is to salt the mango and leave it in the refrigerator over night and then pickle it the next day. This is to soften the mangoes. However, I like them crispy so, cut them quite small and then do a tempering of all the ingredients and mix.

1. Clean and dry the mango
2. Cut them into small pieces, hopefully the picture is helpful to guage
3. Add 2 Tbspn of oil into a hot pan and splutter mustard
4. Keep adding each ingredient in the order of curry leaves, ginger, chili, garlic and then the powders sauteing after each addition
5. Add 1/2 cup of vinegar and switch the fire off
6. Once this mixture cools add it to the mango and check for salt
7. Let the salt be slightly on the higher side, because when the mango marinates in the mixture the salt and sourness of the mango will blend to taste good

  50. I couldn't bring down my eyes to read the recipe, as I was stucked at the second photo :):) I think I'll never manage to do a mango pickle as each time I buy, I finish it raw with chilly powder & salt :):)

  52. Nice pickle. Could you specify whether the chilly powder is red chilly powder or kashmiri chilly powder? I doubted coz only kashmiri chilly powder gives the desired red colour.. whereas red chilly powder makes it spicy (I love it spicy). But since you have also used green chillies do we stick to kashmiri chilly powder? Also can we substitute gingelly oil with sesame oil? Will there be any taste difference? Thanks for sharing this recipe.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Hello Kaala I did not use Kashmiri chilly but the regular chilli powder. If you want to add kashmiir chilli do that and a little etc like a tspn or so to make it hotter. Gingelly and sesame oil are both the same.. both are from sesame seeds or til/ellu etc.
