Tuesday “Samaithu Paar” Series- Fenugreek Mango Pickle

This easy, everyday mango pickle is from Meenakshi Ammal’s “cook and see” part 2. This is the simplest form of mango pickle that can be put together in 10 minutes. Raw green mango works best for this recipe. This pickle tastes best when eaten with yogurt and rice especially on a hot summer afternoon. Summer is far, far away but I found some raw mangoes in the Indian grocery store last week and made this simple pickle. Yumjay didn’t care for rice or other accompaniments, he just decided to go to town on this pickle.
