Kadumanga/Mango Pickle


Kadumanga/Mango Pickle

Kadumanga is indispensable in Kerala Sadhya and it is hard to resist this spicy condiment. We rarely get raw mangoes here and last week I was so glad to come across raw mangoes in our grocery store. I took a few and planned mango pickle and a batch of kadumanga for Onam Sadhya. I am not sure about the authentic version. This is how my mom makes at home,so sharing her recipe. This is quick and instant and spicy relish made with green mangoes.



Ingredients
Raw mango chopped- 3cup
Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
Green chilly chopped- 4
Chilly powder- 4 tsp
(Or according to your spice tolerance)
Asafoetida- 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek powder- 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Gingerly oil- 1/3 cup
Curry leaves-2 springs




Wash and wipe the mangoes dry and chop into small pieces. Mix in salt and keep aside for 2-3 hours.
Boil 1/2 cup water and keep aside to cool.
Heat a pan and dry roast 1/2 of the mustard seeds. When it just begins to splutter switch off the flame and grind this into a coarse mixture and keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add the rest of the mustard seeds. When it splutters add green chilly and curry leaves and after a minute reduce the flame to low and add chilly powder,fenugreek powder and asafoetida. Add 1/2 cup of the boiled water and also strain the water from the mangoes and mix in. Bring this mixture to a boil and allow to reduce. 
Next add the chopped mangoes and coarsely grounded mustard seeds and mix well. After a minute switch off the flame. At this stage the mangoes will be crunchy. If you like it softer continue to simmer in medium flame for three minute. Allow it to cool down and keep in air tight containers.

Try this,
Hope you will all enjoy.
