Maavadu urugaai(Small mango pickle)

This is my mom's preparation..


1 kg Tender raw mangoes (called maavadu, vadu manga)
100 grams Salt
100 grams red chilli powder
100 grams mustard seeds powder
2-3 tbsp castor oil
1 tbsp turmeric powder

Wash and wipe the tender mangoes well. Apply the castor oil to it.

Add salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, mustard seeds powder to the mangoes and then water till the mangoes are well covered with the spicy water. Shake well to mix the masala and keep the jar closed. Every day, shake and mix it well atleast 2-3 times. Repeat the process for atleast a week till the mangoes shrink very well in size.

Vadu manga is ready to serve as a side dish.
