Simple Mango Pickle

Wishing all the wonderful moms out there a very Happy Mother's Day !!

"A mother is a person who seeing there are only four pieces of pie for five people, promptly announces she never did care for pie. "


There is no substitute for Mother. She is the one person whom we can confide all our sorrows and worries. She can forgive all your mistakes and can make you a better person. We all owe a lot to our mothers, rt?

My mother is a great cook. Since it's Mother's day, I thought of writing this recipe which I learnt from her. .I love this a lot when she makes this. I should admit that it doesn't taste the same when I make it, that's the magic of her cooking!!

Who doesnt like the spicy and tangy mango pickle? It goes well with anything. I can eat it with rice , dosa or chapathi...Here is a simple recipe for mango pickle....!!



1 medium Raw Mango
1 tbsp Gingelly oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
5-6 Curry Leaves
1 tbsp Chilly Powder or to taste.(Please adjust as per your taste)
1/2 tsp Asafoetida
Salt

Chop the mango into small pieces. Add some salt, mix well and keep aside for a minimum of 30 minutes to 1 hr.Heat oil in a pan. Splutter mustard seeds and add curry leaves.Remove the pan  from fire. Wait for a minute. Now the oil will still be warm, but not hot. Add asafoetida and chilli powder to the warm oil. (Do not put the chilli powder to the hot oil, it will burn). Mix the spices in oil. Add the mango pieces to this. Mix thoroughly. Adjust salt and chilli if required.

Refrigerate this. Better to consume at the earliest. If you want to use for more days, add a little vinegar.
