Tangy Mango Pickle made in Punjabi Style

Punjabi Aam ka Achaar

Punjab is not only a colourful region in terms of songs or culture, but for cuisine and pickles also. Here we present Aam ka Achar made of Anupam Mustard Seeds and soaked deep in Anupam Gold Mustard Oil for tangy taste, aromatic flavor and rich taste. Sun-dried mangoes used in this pickle impart a salty chewy taste and also improve the shelf life of the pickle. Use mangoes in brine, just drain the mangoes out of the brine solution and mix them with pickling spices. This is a very simple recipe to follow. Keep a caution to use a clean sterilised jar, see that there is no moisture and ensure that mustard oil forms a covering layer over the ingredients in the jar.

Combine the mangoes, turmeric powder and 2 tablespoons of salt and toss well.
Place the mangoes on a sieve, cover with a clean muslin cloth and place under the sun for 4 to 6 hours.

Bottle the pickle in a sterilised glass jar. Place the pickle under the sun for 4 to 5 days.
