The best thing about summer is the availability of seasonal fruits as mangoes, watermelon and grapes. I love these fruits, especially mango. It’s also the time when I try my new recipes with these. Here is another version of mango pickle. This instant raw mango pickle is popular in South India. It is not only tasty but can be made quickly with a few ingredients. Use it with curds rice for that gratifying sense of satisfaction.

Among all the pickles, mango pickle is most popular. Instant variety are a hit as they can be prepared easily  and stored in refrigerator for a couple of days.

Each season is beautiful in it’s own way isn’t it? Without the scorching heat, we would not have the mangoes or the water melon !


  1. Adjust chilli powder and salt to your preference. Don t be stingy on the salt though, it acts as a preservative. Also, if you like a fiery red pickle but not the heat, add Kashmiri chilli powder like I did

    • Hello Artmoney, glad to have you here. This is an instant pickle which can be consumed immediately,hence keep the salt minimal. I do add more salt for the yearly pickle though.
