2 cups raw mango, diced into small pieces
1 cup mustard oil
1/2 cup NSP red chili powder
1/4 cup mustard seeds
2 tablespoons fenugreek seeds
1 tablespoon NSP turmeric powder
1 tablespoon salt
1 tablespoon asafoetida (hing)
10-12 curry leaves
2 tablespoons vinegar
1 tablespoon jaggery (optional)
Begin by thoroughly washing and drying the raw mangoes. Ensure that the mangoes are firm and not overly ripe.
Cut the mangoes into small, uniform pieces, removing the inner seed. Place the diced mangoes in a clean, dry bowl.
In a separate pan, heat mustard oil over medium heat until it reaches smoking point. Remove it from heat and let it cool down.
In a spice grinder or blender, grind mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds to a fine powder. Transfer the powdered mixture to a mixing bowl.
To the mustard-fenugreek powder, add NSP red chili powder, NSP turmeric powder, salt, and asafoetida (hing). Mix all the dry spices together until well combined.
Now, add the diced mangoes to the spice mixture and mix thoroughly, ensuring that each piece is coated with the spice blend.
Gradually add the cooled mustard oil to the mango-spice mixture and mix well. The oil helps to preserve the pickle and enhances its flavors.
Add curry leaves, vinegar, and jaggery (optional) to the mixture. Incorporate them evenly, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Transfer the Avakaya Pachadi to clean, sterilized jars. Press it down firmly to remove any air bubbles and ensure that the pickle is tightly packed.
Seal the jars with airtight lids and store them in a cool, dark place for at least a week to allow the flavors to develop. The longer you let it mature, the more delicious it will become.
After the initial resting period, your Avakaya Pachadi is ready to be savored! Serve it with hot steamed rice, roti, or any of your favorite dishes for an explosion of tangy and spicy flavors.
