Now coming to recipe part…
Prpearation Time 20 min
Cooking Time 20 min
Serves 250 gm pickle
2 big raw mangoes(around 500 gm)
1 cup sugar
2 tsp salt
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tbsp red chili powder
1 tsp degi mirch powder
1/2 tbsp fennel powder
1/2 tsp fenugreek powder
A pinch of asefoetida
1 tsp kalonji(optional)
Wash the raw mangoes properly and wipe it with a dry towel.
Make it dry and peel it.
Now cut into big pieces and add all spices to this.
Mix it properly and keep as it is at least for 3 to 4 hours.
So that sugar dissolved properly and all the juices from mangoes oozes out.
Now dry roast fennel seed and fenugreek seed in low flame.
I took in large quantity as 3 tbsp of fennel seeds and 1 tbsp of fenugreek seeds…the reason behind it I can use this when I prepare next batch of pickle and if I prepare in large quantity it is easier to grind.
When it is dry roasted add 1 tsp of asafoetida to this.
Now grind it to a fine powder and store in an air tight container.
After 4 hours you can see all sugar dissolved properly.
Now heat a pan and add mixture to this.
Keep stirring it…otherwise it may stick to bottom.
Keep the flame medium…and stir it in between.
After sometime the mixture little thickens up,then add the fennel,fenugreek n asafoetida powder.
At last add kalonji n saute for some time.
Now make it cool down…after cooling it more thickens.
Store in an air tight container and it will remain 3 to 4 months.
Notes: Add the fennel,fenugreek n asafoetida mixture at last…so that its flavor retains.
Grind it instead of adding it as whole…so that it will not taste anything odd while you taste pickle…this useful tip is given by my choti mami.
As we don’t add any water to this so no need to keep it in freeze.
