Spicy Maa Inji Pickle Recipe - Mango Ginger Pickle Recipe

I asked hubby to get some ginger from the supermart. When he handed me the baggie i saw that he bought this mango ginger instead of normal ginger. I was not at all worried, because i wanted to make this pickle and share it in my blog for so long. I called my mom and asked for the recipe and she gave me two kinds of recipe. One with oil and other without oil. Will be sharing a no oil version soon..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Preparation Time : 15 mins
Cooking Time : 2 mins

Maa Inji / Mango Ginger - 250 grams
Salt to taste
Lemon Juice - 3 to 4 tblspn

For Spicy Oil:
Oil - 2 tblspn
Mustard Seeds / Kaduku - 1 tsp
Fenugreek Seeds / Vendayam / methi - 1/4 tsp

Turmeric Powder / Manjal Podi - 1 tsp


Wash, peel and slice maa inji. Set aside.
