Spicy, flavorful, aromatic and definitely mouth-watering Kerala Style Mango Pickle is ridiculously easy to prepare. Sour raw mangoes and gingelly oil are the main ingredients that give the pickle its unique flavor.
Maanga curry or Mango Pickle is an important dish served in a traditional Onam/Vishu/Kerala Wedding Sadya. It is one of my absolute favorite and the mere thought of it makes me drool. There are different ways to prepare a Mango Pickle in Kerala Style. This is how my Amma makes and it is pretty simple to prepare. And of course, this IS prepared by Amma and the pictures were clicked when I had visited home last September. I was browsing through the pictures today and these sinful pictures reminded me of posting the recipe.
Mangoes are in season now and also, today on April 22nd we are celebrating Aam Achaar Day (Mango Pickle Day) nationwide. Rushina Munshaw Ghildiyal, founder of APB Cook Studio, had come up with this special day last year in 2017. Since sticking to only mango pickles was kinda limiting, this year it has been extended to Achaar Day.
I confess that I don’t usually make pickles at home. I pick up my favorite brand of pickles from the supermarket. But when I visit Amma she makes these sinfully delicious ones and I go crazy. This raw mango pickle is also called Kadumaanga achaar in Malayalam. I thought pickle-making was a hectic job but believe me, this is easy and I will definitely prepare it this mango season.
