Dried Mango Pickle Recipe / Hot Mango Pickle Recipe

This is one of the pickle which my aunty gave me when i was pregnant. I loved it so much, that i kept it for few days in my bedroom and enjoyed it..When i found few mangoes lying in the fridge, i decided to give this a try. This pickle needs a day ahead planning because you have to dry this for a day in sun. 

Before going to the recipe, You can check out my andhra mango pickle, punjabi mango pickle, sweet mango chutney and sweet mango pickle or other pickle recipes..

You dont have to dry it so much, the outer part of the pickle should dry and have no wetness on it. Then it has a simple spice mix and a simple seasoning. This pickle taste great with simple curd rice..Love it so much.
