Sweet Mango Pickle

Sweet Mango Pickle

This recipe is from my sister again and the history of this pickle and me goes long back during my schooling days.  My friends use to bring this pickle along with roti/paratha for lunch box and I would happily eat these. 

I never knew making this pickle is as easy as blinking eye and just with 4 ingredients.  This makes very good lunch box for kids, pack it with roti/paratha and see how the enjoy it, I use to do a lot.


Raw Mango - 3
Sugar - 1 Cup
Cardamom  Crushed- 3
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 tsp


1. Wash and grade the raw mango.

2. In a pan/wok saute the grated mango for 2 minutes.  Add sugar and cook until sugar dissolves.

3. Add turmeric powder, cardamom mix everything and cook in slow flame until sugar syrup evaporates and mango gets cooked around 7-10 minutes. 

The pickle is will be sticky due to sugar so handle with care.  It stays up to a week in room temperature and 2-3 weeks in fridge after that the mango bites will become hard.   

Goes well with plain or stuffed paratha.  Even with plan dal-rice/rasam or curd rice.  Try it with rasam and it will taste like pineapple rasam and I like this with curd rice too.  

Have a nice day ~~
