Mamidikaya Pachadi / Mango Pickle

I prepared Mango pickle as per traditional way, eventhough its not summer here...usually these mangoes r washed n dried, chopped into small pieces n mixed with handful of spices, then they will be stored in a Jaadi for few days until they r ready for consumption...Its not summer here, its kinda hard to prepare them as we prepare them in India..here comes my simple,easy n traditional way of preparing the famous mango pickle...i love my pickles to be bit spicy, for this recipe we need to add more redchilli powder as it is typical Andhra's pickles..if u think its too spicy, can decrease them as per ur need..

1cup Mango pieces
2tsp Red chilly powder(can decrease also)
1/2tsp Mustard seeds
1/4tsp Fenugreek seeds
2tbsp Gingelly oil

Pat dry the mango pieces one by one..they should be dry.... dry roast the mustard seeds n fenugreek seeds together ...grind them into fine powder...add the grounded powder, chilly powder n salt to the mango pieces in a large bowl..

Mix everything well with a wooden spatula...heat the gingelly oil in a pan..once they get heated add them immediately to the spiced mango pieces, u may hear hot oil make some sound like buzz...toss everything well...tranfer everything to a air tightened plastic box n conserve them..

The pickle will be prefect after a day...serve them with any choice of Rice dishes...
