Preparation Time : 30 mins
Sun Drying Time : 2 days


Raw Mangoes - 5 large mangoes chopped into cubes
Fennel Seeds / Saunf / Sombu - 2 tblspn 
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 2 tblspn
Fenugreek Seeds / Methi / Vendayam - 2 tsp
Nigella Seeds / Kalonji - 2 tblspn
Salt to taste
Turmeric Powder / Manjal Podi - 1 tblspn
Red Chilli Powder - 2 to 3 tblspn
Mustard Oil or Gingelly Oil - as needed


Take mustard, fennel, fenugreek in a blender and crush them coarsely. Set aside.

Take chopped mangoes in a bowl, add this spice mix, turmeric, salt, chilli powder, nigella seeds and toss well.

Place this bowl under sunlight for 2 whole days.

Now spoon this into bowl.

Pour over mustard oil. The oil should completely cover the mangoes.

Let this sit for a week before enjoying.

For making this pickle without sun:

1)Just mix everything up, fill a bottle with it. Pour over the oil till it is completely covered. Set aside for a week before using. This way the mango will be moist before it has not been dried under sun.


1)Always use clean and dry bowl, bottle and spoon while handling this pickle.
2)This pickle stays good for over a year
3)I added raw mustard seed oil, you can heat it till smoking then cool it completely and add it in.

Take all your ingredients

Take mustard in a blender

add in fenugreek seeds

in with some fennel seeds

crush them roughly

Now take your chopped raw mangoes in a large bowl

add in the spice mix

add in turmeric powder

add nigella seeds

add in chilli powder

and some salt

now everything is added in

toss well

place it under sunlight for 2 whole days

this is how it looks after 1 day

this is how it looks the second day

spoon the mix into a bottle

Now you can either use sesame oil or mustard oil

open it up

pour it in

the oil should cover the mangoes completely

like this..Allow this to steep for a week

and enjoy


  1. I have a confusion regarding method before the final submerging amounts of mustard oil addition. Some people do not add crushed mustard seeds instead use a little mustard oil initially during two days period that you mentioned - is that fine as we have done it this way? Further it is raining so we cannot put it in sunlight. However, I can put a lit bulb instead if that makes any sense :) ?
