Kanda-Kairi (raw mango & onion) Instant pickle


My aunty was here last week & she taught me this very simple instant pickle. It just takes 10 minutes to make & trust me you will love it with roti, rice or even bread slices!

1 medium size raw mango (kairi)
1 medium size onion (kanda)
1 tbs jaggery
1/2 tsp red chilli powder
Salt as per taste
2 tbs oil for making tadka
1 tbs mustard seeds
1/2 tsp hing
1/2 tsp turmeric powder

  1. Wash the raw mango & grate it. Peel & grate the onion. Keep in a big bowl. Add red chilli powder, salt, jaggery. 
  2. Make tadka -- heat oil add mustard seeds, hing & turmeric powder. Let the tadka cool down. Add it to the raw mango-onion mixture. Mix well.
  3. Store in a glass jar/ ceramic jar in the fridge. Use within 4-5 days.
