Kannimanga or tender mango pickle is an all-time favourite that is mostly enjoyed with hot kanji (rice porridge). Check out the easy recipe of tender mango pickle that can stay good for years in air tight containers.
1 big bowl of tender mango preserved in brine (A tiny bit of the mango stalk should be retained. Wash the mangoes and wipe them dry. Preserve them in a glass jar along with rock salt up to two weeks. Do not forget to shake the jar occasionally. The mangoes will shrink. The juice that oozes out of the mangoes too is used while preparing the pickle.)
10 tbsp chili powder
7 tbsp mustard seed powder
1 ½ asafoetida powder
½ tsp fenugreek powder
100 ml sesame oil (in which asafoetida has been roasted)
Drain the water from the tender mango into a bowl
