The summers in India are quite unbearable, but they have a saving grace - the mango season. Everyone looks forward to the yearly mango crop and housewives get busy blending the myriad spices needed for a whole year's supply of mango pickles. As pickles are an essential feature of the Indian menu, new and more innovative varieties come up from time to time. This recipe is of a tongue tickling grated mango and chick pea pickle combined judiciously with whole and powdered spices. The chick peas in this recipe take on a sour salty flavour as they are soaked in raw mango juice. Like all oil pickles, this has a shelf life of upto one year but I am sure it will be eaten up much before that.

love it...totally authentic recipe, just the way as my grandmother made it, except that she soaks the chana in the raw mango juice accumulated while making mango pickle
