  1. Mix sea salt with grated mangoes and keep it aside covered for about 30 mins to 1 hour. The juice from mango will be released.
  2. Squeeze the juice from grated mango and reserve it for later. Keep aside squeezed mango gratings.
  3. Dry roast dry red chillies, fenugreek seeds, mustard seeds and hing in a pan on medium to low flame for about 2-3 minutes till fenugreek seeds turns light brown in colour and you get nice roasted aroma from spices.
  4. Cool the spices and grind them coarsely with grated mango. Add reserved squeezed mango juice as and when required. This Pickle/Chutney should be quite thick in consistency and make sure that you don’t grind them to smooth paste.
  5. Store them in a sterilised jar in refrigerator. It can be used up to a 15-20 days. Serve them with Dosa, Idli, toast or Curd Rice and enjoy.

  • You can also add 1 tsp roasted Cumin Seeds/Jeera for little different flavour.
  • Make sure that you don’t grind it to smooth paste. It should be ground coarsely so that you can enjoy small chunks of spices and mango.
  • Tothapuri mangoes work best for this recipe. But if you don’t get them at your place then you can easily substitute it with any other sour, raw mango of your choice.
