Fresh Green Mango Pickle
- 1 raw green mango
- salt to taste
- 2 teaspoon cilantro
- red chili powder to taste
- 2 tablespoons oil
- 1/2 teaspoon mustard seeds
- 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
- 1/4 teaspoon fenugreek
- pinch of asafoetida
- 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
- 1 - 2 tablespoons black vinegar
- 1/2 teaspoon onion seeds, (or poppy seeds or black sesame seeds)
Directions: Wash, peel and chop mango into small a dice, place it in a bowl, add salt, chopped cilantro, red chili, and onion seeds. You can leave the skin on if you like, but discard the core. I had some carrot left over from the green mango salad so I added a little of the carrots too.
In a tiny skillet heat up the oil on medium heat. Add the mustard seeds until fragrant and start to pop, add cumin seeds, stir about 30 seconds, add asafoetida, fenugreek, and turmeric. Turn off the heat and stir it to mix. Pour over the mango and mix well, add the vinegar, stir to combine and garnish or top with black sesame seeds.When cool store in airtight jar for 4-7 days.
This is a great condiment with Indian food. It is also yummy served with flat breads, hummus, or add it to couscous! It was nice warm...I couldn't wait for it to cool before I tried it.
So what kind of fresh pickles have you made?
Now I'm bitter that I don't have any dosa to put that on.ReplyDelete
I love mango chutney, now if only we had the mangoes!!! I am hoping we will have enough figs to make some chutney this year, but there is not much fruit of any kind this year after the hard winter! DianeReplyDelete

Have a wonderful weekend :)
Lyndsey, I'm so glad you were able to find such an amazing and really gourmet yummy green mango recipe! Looks so refreshing and delicious!ReplyDelete
I will be googling for that black vinegar, which I have never even heard of, and some of the other spices, as well...ie. ASAFOETIDA?...am I living under a 'rock'? How come I don't know about these ingredients?
Ha! Elisabeth, you are funny! I don't think every North American kitchen has Chinese black vinigar and asafoetida (also called hing) in it. I like the black vinegar because it is not so vinegary...I don't like a strong vinegar taste, so I will use either balsamic or black vinegar, mild and slightly sweet. Asafoetida I picked up at the Asian store along with the Chinese black vinegar of course. I use it in many Indian dishes and dahl, it has a funny smell, but I like it. You only use a pinch or two. Let me know I can send you some...or bring it when I come. :DReplyDelete
I have never had any pickles made with mangoes! It looks absolutely tempting!ReplyDelete
Oh yum! This looks delicious Lyndsey! Hope you are enjoying your summer :)ReplyDelete
I would love to try your mango pickles, Lyndsey, but I'm afraid I've never seen several of the ingredients in my market. I just made a jar of pickled cucumber, onion and carrots that I love to add to salads. That's about as exotic as I get.ReplyDelete
hi lyndsey, i hv not made any sorts of pickles before..another great idea with mangoes, i think they make fabulous appetisers too!ReplyDelete
What delicious pickles - full of so much flavor! I am going to be in search of green mango now! I just made watermelon rind pickles for the first time.ReplyDelete
This would go well with grilled meat, love the recipeReplyDelete
This is very interesting. I haven't used mangoes for any savory dishes - but pickles sounds fun and great side dish to try for sure! I'm tired of using cucumbers for pickles. Haha.ReplyDelete
