Instant mango pickle

Instant mango pickle

I'm a big fan of pickles and I always prefer to easy and simple methods for preparing them. Today i am sharing such a simple pickle recipe with you all. You won't be able to preserve it for longer periods like the normal pickles. Just a maximum of 4-5 days. Thats the shelf life of this pickle. That too only if you refrigerate it. ( I empty the pickle bottle within hours after preparing the no tensions for me!!! :) )

  • Add green chillies and garlic cloves.
  • Add mango pieces and mix well.
  • Now add chilly powder, salt and asafoetida. Mix well.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of water and cook it on a low flame for a few seconds.
