Mango pickle with Fenugreek sprouts


Mango pickle made with Fenugreek sprouts - just loving it… made in complete traditional way.. 

Here is the recipe - 

1 1/2 kg Raw Mangoes - (Measurement after washing, cleaning and cutting the mangoes into pieces)

1/2 cup Fenugreek seeds 

1/2 cup Mustard Dal ( Rai ka Kuria) 

4 tbsp or more Salt as per taste

2 tbsp Turmeric powder 

1 tbsp Kashmiri chilli powder 

3 tbsp Chilli powder 

2 tbsp Roasted Fennel powder 

1 tbsp Roasted Coriander powder 

1 tbsp Roasted Cumin powder 

1/2 tsp Asafoetida 

1 tsp Carom seeds

1/2 tsp Nigella seeds

1/2 liter Sesame Oil


Day 1 - Take a bowl, add the mango pieces, add 2 tbsp salt and 1 tbsp turmeric powder, mix all the ingredients together, cover and leave the bowl aside overnight, wash the fenugreek seeds well and soak the fenugreek seeds in water overnight. 

Day 2 - Next day stir the mango pieces with a dry spoon. Cover and keep the mangoes aside. Strain the water from the fenugreek seeds, instead of throwing the water, drink the water, it’s good for health. Take the soaked fenugreek seeds and in a moist cloth, tie the cloth and keep it hanging. In between keep sprinkling water on the cloth to keep the cloth moist. It takes 2 days to get sprouts. We don’t need to over sprout the seeds. 

Day 3 - Strain the water from the mango pieces and keep the water aside. Spread the mango pieces on a cloth or on a plate, sun dry the mangoes for 3 to 4 hours. 

Meanwhile heat the oil, let the oil cool a bit, but it should be still hot, add the these ingredients in a bowl - 2 tbsp salt, mustard dal, Kashmiri chilli powder, red chilli powder, remaining turmeric powder, roasted coriander powder, cumin powder, fennel powder, carom seeds, Nigella seeds and asafoetida. Mix all the ingredients together. 

Now add 1/2 the amount of oil into the ingredients and mix well. Cover and keep the masala aside, until the mangoes are sun drying. After 3 to 4 hours, add the mangoes into the masala, mix the masala well and keep the mangoes covered. 

Day 4 - Remove the fenugreek sprouts and sun dry until all the moisture from the sprouts are removed, for 2 hours. Then add the fenugreek sprouts into the marinated mango water, mix and keep it aside for an hour. Now mix the water and the sprouts into the mango pieces. Stir and keep it aside. 

Day 5 - Store the pickle into a clean dry glass jar. 

Day 6 - Stir the pickle and add the remaining oil. Stir daily once with a clean dry spoon and keep it to mature for at least 7 days. 

After 7 days it’s ready…
