During the mango season in the summer in Punjab, one can see at least two or three earthenware jars full of pickled raw mangoes maturing in the sun outside homes. This typical Punjabi aam ka achar recipe for making mango pickle is most popular in the region.

This is a very simple recipe to follow. The combination of fennel seeds, nigella seeds with mustard and other pickling spices is what distinguishes this mango pickle from its equally famous Gujarati counter part. Sun-dried mangoes used in this pickle impart a salty chewy character and also improve the shelf life of the pickle.

We recommend the use of mustard oil to make this aam ka achar as it is best suited for making achar. However, you can use any other oil if you wish to.

Tips for aam ka achar. 1. Just keep in mind the basics of pickle making a clean sterilized jar and see that there is no moisture in the jar before adding the pickle. 2. Ensure that mustard oil forms a covering layer over the ingredients in the jar. This acts as a preservative and prevents spoilage. 3. We recommend you use a measured quantity of salt for this recipe to get the perfect taste. Also salt acts as a preservative too. 4. During storage, once in a while, take a spoon and mix the pickle in the jar. This is to ensure that the entire pickle is well soaked in oil. 5. Remember never to touch the pickle with your hand. The warmth of your hand may be a reason for spoilage. So use a spoon for serving.
