Mango Pickle


Hey there!  I'm back with another pickle recipe.  The season of king of fruits is on. The raw mango pickle is very popular in India. Despite of continuous bad whether since last month, I somehow able to make a bottle of mango pickle last week and is now ready to serve. Raw mango pickle is my daughter's favorite pickle so how can I skip raw mango pickle from my list. As my first batch of raw mango pickle is ready to serve, I'm going to share the recipe with you. 


Mango pickle is a condiment made from raw mango, spices, salt and oil. For pickling I use mustard oil only.  There are many different methods of making mango pickle and among them this one is the simplest one.
