Kerala Mango Pickle / Manga Pickle

Kerala Mango Pickle

Kerala Mango Pickle / Manga Pickle is a Spicy, Aromatic and Sinfully Addictive Pickle made with Gingelly oil and Spices. It is perfect sides for all kinds of rice dish. The taste, color, preparation, and the spices used vary from place to place. Pickles made with mango, lemon and ginger are very popular in Kerala and a must have for Sadya. Among those, mangoes are all time favourite. The sourness of the fruit, the heat from the red chili powder, and the aroma of fenugreek and asafetida, together make a tongue tickling combination. Depending on the size of the raw mangoes, the number of mangoes will vary. So when you chop the mangoes, you should get about 1 to 1.25 cups of chopped mangoes. At room temperature, this will last for 1 to 2 days. If you directly keep in the fridge after the pickle is prepared, then it will last for about a week.
