How To Make Avakkai Pickle

First if all choose good quality raw mangoes . Then soak them in water for few hours to clean the sap and then wipe them well to remove all the moisture on the mangoes.

Then cut mangoes into small bite size pieces. If possible then cut with a special knife with the kernel intact with the mango flesh . If not possible then chop the flesh into small pieces. Spread the chopped pieces on a cloth and dry under the fan for 2-3 hours.

Dry roast the fenugreek seeds for 2 minutes till they change there color slightly, switch off the heat and then add mustard seeds in it and stir for a minutes .Dont over roast else they will taste bitter and after cooling grind them to make a fine powder.

Traditionally raw sesame oil is used in this pickle which gives a nice aroma and taste to the pickle. if you don't want to use it then use groundnut oil /mustard oil/ Sunflower oil instead. Addition of chick peas is optional but recommended.
