Mango Pickle Recipe

Posted by Veena Karanth at 09:55:00
Mango pickle is by far, one of the most popular pickles. It is usually consumed along with curd rice or parathas. Different types of pickles can be prepared like lemon, mango and mixed vegetable are some of the varieties. Usually, pickles are spicy and sometimes even sweetish. The pickle recipe which I have shown here below is made out of mango. Mangoes, supposed to be known as the king of fruits is used in many dishes. Here, I have used green raw mangoes which is plenty in vitamin-C. It is believed that the vitamin-C present in mangoes protect our body from many infections and it is also a preventive measure for cancer. Pickles consumed in moderate quantities, on a daily basis is OK. But consuming in larger quantities could be dangerous. Some pickles are high in sodium which is very bad for our health. In olden days, mangoes were fermented in a natural process, but now people usually use vinegar and prepare. The pickle which I have shown here cannot be preserved for a long time. However, you can keep it in the fridge and can use it for a month or so.
