I love making pickles, you can see the list of pickle recipes which i have made..I have already made a punjabi mango pickle recipe. But this one is even more special and tasty one..
This pickle can be made in a jiffy, but it can be stored for almost a year. How cool is that..So when you find mangoes on season, just pick a bunch of them and make this pickle.
I will be sharing another version of pickle very soon, so stay tuned..
