Sweet mango pickles are very special. The mangoes chosen for this pickle should be firm and under ripe. They are peeled, cut into thin slices and simmered in sugar syrup with garlic, cloves, bay leaf, peppercorns, spiked with chilli powder and fennel seeds. The mango flesh softens but stays intact and blends easily with the sugar and spices without losing its original flavour. You can use any variety of raw mangoes, if the Rajapuri variety is not available. This pickle will complement the kashmiri rotis to perfection. Stored refrigerated, this should last you for upto one year.
