Pickles add taste and zing to the food that we eat. These are loved and consumed by all. Pickles are usually made during summer and stored in earthen jars to consume for the whole year. Thus, as Wikipedia says, pickling is a process of preserving or expanding the life span of food by either anaerobic fermentation in brine or immersion in vinegar. But, there are versions of instant pickles too which stay good for a couple of days. Here is one such kind, “Instant Mango Pickle”.

Pickles,tangy, sour, hot, the very name of it, salivates our mouth. It is one of the essentials in most Indian homes. Many different kinds are made but the most popular ones are lemon and mango. Chilly, gooseberry, cauliflower, carrot  and mixed pickle are the different variety that are prepared.

Today, I am presenting to you an instant variety of pickle made of mango. This post is part of Culinary Hoppers Bloghop with the theme “Pickles”
