  • Author: Desa Gounden


  • 1kg Green Mangoes (Quartered and with the pip removed)
  • White Vinegar
  • Vegetable Oil
  • Pickle Masala


Desa explains how she prepared her delicious pickle.

  • I chopped my mangoes about a kilos worth into quarters removed the seeds.
  • Rinsed them well and let them dry out for a day (indoors).
  • I then boiled them in white vinegar for 10 minutes.
  • Drained the vinegar out and then put them in an airtight container & sprinkled 100g pickle masala and enough vegetable oil to coat and soak the mangoes.
  • I did not add salt as the pickle masala has it.
  • Seal and leave in room temperature to soak making sure you mix it up now and then.
  • Ready to serve after a day or so.
