Quick Mango Pickle

Here is a recipe for an instant pickle which takes less than 10 minutes to prepare. This is a regular item on a wedding menu around Bangalore and to this day, the sour - hot 'Maavinakayi uppinakayi' (mango pickle) served at the wedding feasts, remains one of my favorites. This quicker version of mango pickle is heavenly delicious with hot rice and ghee.

 

Ingredients:
Green mango, chopped into fine cubes - 1 cup
Chillie powder - 3 to 4 tsp
Salt
Hing (Asafoetida) - Half of 1/4 tsp
Oil - 2 Tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp

Mix together mango pieces, chillie powder and salt in a bowl.
Heat oil in a small pan. Add mustard seeds and asafoetida to the hot oil. When mustard seeds start to splutter, turn off the stove and let it cool.
Add this to the bowl and mix well.
Serve this with hot rice and ghee or breakfast dishes like upma.


Though I had planned something else, due to time constraints this one is going to be my 'Q' entry for Nupur's A - Z of Indian vegetables.

Note: Additionally, 1 tsp mustard seeds powder (aavapindi) and 1/4 tsp of fenugreek seeds powder (menthi podi) can be added.

Seema,
I usually prepare this uppinakayi with only one mango. It would be finished in a couple of days by us. The maximum I have tried is for 10 days, refrigerated. Though I am not sure, my guess is that it may stay fresh beyond that, because of the sourness of the mango.

To be honest, I like it with rice and every thing else.My mouth literally waters when I think about this chutney.
