Mango Pickle Recipe

Come summer and your sight is full of mangoes be it ripe or raw. In fact, thinking of both makes my mouth water. While ripe mangoes leave you feeling full and satisfied the memories of the tangy taste of raw mangoes are enough to make my mouth water.

Although I make enough use of raw mangoes found at this time like making raw mango and onions chutney, aam panna, athana mango pickle, aam ras, stuffed karela or bitter gourd with mango and onion filling and my favourite aam ka achar/ mango pickle.

My love affair with mango is very old and dates back to my childhood where I grew up eating the prime Alphonso mangoes. My grandma’s house used to be loaded with mangoes for us children and most of the time we used to skip meals and fill our bellies with mangoes. We happen to have mango orchards hence all the best quality export mangoes were free to enjoy.

I had always loved the mango pickle preparation that was prepared by the Punjabis. The tangy taste was too good to be true. So when I got married into a Punjabi household I got the opportunity to learn how to make this mouthwatering mango pickle which has the power to make your mouth water by the sheer aroma of it as the jar is opened. This is my mother in law’s recipe that I so proudly share with you today. Hope you enjoy making it and eating it too. This recipe is enough to last for one year if you consume less pickle but if you love pickles then you’ll need 5- 10 kgs of mangoes to last a year (depending on annual consumption)

Tips To Make a Perfect Mango Pickle Recipe

  • Use fresh spices, check them for any husk or stones and clean them up before use.
  • Remember to press the mango pieces down into the jar gently and firmly as this will obliterate air spaces and consume less oil.
  • Preferably use a traditional ceramic barni or a glass barni.
  • No plastic jars, please. They cause cancer and are not biodegradable. Also, they will NOT allow the sun to dry up any extra moisture that the mango will release after adding salt resulting in the achar getting spoilt due to fungus.
  • Hygiene and cleanliness are paramount in making a pickle for storage or pickle for fresh consumption. For me, pickling is a very pious activity. I hate it when someone takes a pickle and then wastes it.
  • The jar should be absolutely dry.  Absolutely no moisture allowed.
  • Chilly powder and salt can be matched as per your taste. But do keep in mind that salt and oil are the only natural preservatives you use here.
