Share with friends and family

 The very name of raw mango is enough to salivate our taste buds and make us drool . Such is the power of the tanginess and unique taste that a raw mango exuberates . 

Today , I shall be sharing a quick and instant recipe of a tasty mango pickle which doesn't need any elaborate ingredients or pre and post processing . 

Known  by various names ; Maanga pisaral , Maangai thundam , Maanga Keeru , Maamidikaya pachadi , kalyana Manga oorga etc etc .. this pickle doesn't have a very long shelf life but tastes very heavenly and is served in almost all  South indian weddings during summer.  Usually the thothapuri /kilimooku mango variety is used to prepare this instant mango pickle

Offlate most of us are shying away from eating pickles for various health reasons.  As much as I agree on the health part of it , at times I love to take a bite of some spicy and tangy mango pickle and enjoy it with some chilled curd rice on a hot sunny afternoon.

For a South Indian, no meal is complete without the creamy curd rice and specially in summers  curd rice is  soothing and divine when served with some fresh manga pisaral.

Maanga pisaral is totally vegan and you can make it even Gluten free by skipping the asafoetida used for tempering. 

 Mangai thundam tastes heavenly and very flavorful when prepared using gingelly oil for the tempering, but you can use any other edible cooking oil too. I would highly recommend using only Gingelly/Sesame/Til oil to get the authentic flavor and taste.
