Recipe Source :Chef and her Kitchen
4 cups Mango pieces (around 1 kg)
1 cup Mustard seed powder
1 cup Red chili powder
1/3 cup Garlic pods
2 tablespoon fenugreek seeds(roughly ground )
1 cup salt
1 1/2 cup Sesame oil
Wash and wipe the mangoes with a dry cloth. Cut the Mango in 1 " pieces.
If the inner shell is in tact this will increase the shelf life of pickle.
Remove the extra outer layers of garlic and keep just one thin layer intact with the pod.
Now take a big bowl and mix the mustard seeds powder,red chili powder and salt until everything is mixed well.
Add the mango pieces to it and mix well and apply the mixture all over the mango pieces with your hands.Add methi seeds and garlic pods to the mixed mixture and mix well.
Add 1 1/4 cups of oil to the spice coated mango pieces and mix well.
On the day-3 if you see the oil is floating on the pickle up to an 1/2" height then it is perfect. Store it in an air tight ceramic , glass or Tupperware container.
Serve with main course.
