This is the first time I tried Instant Mango Pickle (kairie ka achaar). Honestly speaking, this is the first time I have tried any variety of pickle. The idea of trying aam ka achar (mango pickle) was there in my mind this summer, but probably kept postponing because I would be a beginner and that made me hesitant. I love pickles where everything is mixed and kept in achaar ki barni (vessel specifically meant for pickles), tied up with a piece of cloth and each day kept in sun heat for at least 10-12 days till pickle is ready!! As kids we used to be so tempted to taste the pickle but our mom’s strict instructions always kept us away. I love pickles, but I also get throat infections easily, so I was not very keen to try my mom’s recipes for any pickles. One day Manish insisted to try at least Instant Mango Pickle. Last year we had tasted this instant mango pickle through my dear neighbour friend Subbalaksmi who had given me the wonderful recipe of Raw Mango Chutney with Jaggery. Once again I requested her to give me the recipe for pickle and finally I tried a pickle recipe for the first time!
Through this recipe we can prepare pickle in 12 hours if weather is really hot. Nowadays Bangalore is cold because of monsoon, so mine got ready in 24 hours. This is Instant pickle. So once it is ready, we have to keep it in the fridge. How long we can keep it? Don’t worry about that. It is so tasty and easy to prepare that it will be over very soon and there will be a demand to prepare it again!!
Raw mangoes 2
Rock salt 2 tsp
Turmeric powder 1 +1/2 tsp
Red chilli powder 2 tsp
Oil 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds 1+1/2 tsp
Asafoetida a pinch
Wash and cut raw mangoes into 2 pieces, remove the seed, and chop them along with the peel in tiny pieces.
Keep them in a bowl, add rock salt and turmeric powder and mix it nicely. Cover the bowl and keep it at any safe place in your kitchen till the evening. If you get sunlight in your house, keep the bowl there. Sunlight will help in reducing the time in which mango pieces become soft. In between keep on stirring them for 5-6 times. You might notice some water in the bowl later. Don’t worry about it. If weather is pretty hot, till the evening, raw mango pieces will turn soft. If it is a cold or rainy day, let them soften for whole night also.
In the morning taste mango pieces. If required, add a little more salt along with red chilli powder. Heat oil in a pan, splatter mustard seeds and asafoetida and let this seasoning cool down a bit. Then add in the bowl of raw mango pieces. Mix it well and Instant Mango Pickle is ready!!!

Goes very well with aaloo parantha. Is your husband slim? How can he be?
Ha ha ha… Parneet, we are a family of slim figure people . I love to try out new dishes, if too much fat is there , I share with neighbouring friends. Bas padosi thoda weight gain kar lete hai, hum veise hee rahte hai😀😁
Would never be your padosi 😊😊
You are Punjabi and your regular menu itself is so delicious. You don’t need padosi☺️

wow! so easy, always wondered how my mom use to make aam ka aachar at home.
Thank you very much 😊
Moms have magic hands and their full proof recipes ☺️
This is so simple Deeksha. Kairi hai ghar mein, will try 👍🏻

Pickles are an integral part of Indian food. Very good pickle recipe ma’am👌🙂
Agreed with you Yogesh, our ancestors had this wonderful culinary experience in achaar recipes.
Thank you very much 😊
I did it because it’s easy !! 💕
I also like it as it is very convenient with least ingredients!
This is the most popular Aachar in India. It adds zing when paired with the simple food like Dal Chawal
Oh yes, in North India daal chaawal ke saath and in South India dahi chaawal ke saath!!
Pretty easy.. will try for sure. I wish I had seen this post earlier today, aaj parantha bana hai 😁
Deepika, weekend is here. Treat of paratha is always a good idea for Sunday brunch 😋😊
I will try that as well. I did not have the opportunity to empty the Indian shop in Aalborg yet … 😉 … but I did try the dessert from not long ago. I will post a picture and link to your site. I LOVE mangoes or did I mention it before?
There is one problem: where do I get asafoetida? It is in so many recipes, it must be important. I had the same problem in Germany.
I know Stella you love mangoes 😊
Asafoetida adds flavor and it is very good for digestion issues. I am sure Indian shop would be having in their shelves. But if you are not able to get it, just ignore it and follow the rest of the process.
I am so curious to see the dessert pic😊😍
Love this quick and easy recipe for mango pickle .It sure goes well with any meal .
Nisha, thank you very much 😊
We are having it with lunch and dinner and my neighbour liked it a lot with curd rice☺️
Yes excellent combination with curd rice indeed!
Lovely ya. I just love homemade pickles. This one looks so yum and easy, Dee.😋 I made a couple of days back! .
Thanks a lot Nanchi☺️😊
I believe most of us prepare this pickle as it is effortless and with minimal ingredients.
Yes, absolutely! 🙂
But nothing like Nani-Dadi ke haath ka swad.
Nice and easy way of making this mango pickle, Deeksha. Even my son will cut the mango into slices and apply red chilli powder and sambhar powder and will eat nicely just like that or with his food a little khatta too mangoes tastes very yummy. Thanks for this lovely share.
Oh yessss…. my childhood memories with this chatpata ‘keiri kee fank’. That’s what we call for raw mango pieces. As kids we used to go on early morning walk with friends gang in summer holidays , pluck mangoes from the trees and eating them with chatpata masala… Kya din the!!
Yes and such beautiful and lovely memories we had Deeksha. Plucking and applying little of all this and eating like crazy
We make pretty much the same. Well shared, Deeksha!
Thank you very much Indira. I guess this recipe is quite popular in India as not much efforts are required.
To try new flavors, it doesn’t matter waiting the (10) or the (15) days. It really is a rare pickle variety. But as seen in the recipe, it’s worth a try.
Good weekend for you and your family at home.
Mac, pickles are integral part of Indian culinary culture. Each state has their own unique style and variety. Pickles recipes continue from one generation to other in most of the household. You will be surprised that without adding any artificial preservatives homemade pickles stay for 2-3 years. Summer is considered the best season as sunlight is required for natural cooking of pickles.
I hope you will like the taste of this specific instant recipe.
Have a great weekend and stay healthy and safe.
He had no idea of their preparation in their tradition. In this way they are healthier. I am sure I will like it because, according to the photos and the recipe, they look tasty. Good day
I love mango pickles and this is an amazing recipe! I will try this out for sure. This seems very tasty and in lockdown, it’s better we make this at home. Thanks!

No time for sun ripened pickles now in Bangalore as it is completely cloudy. So this recipe is – fatafat bana lo aur kha lo😁

Love the simplicity. My mom used to make it. Now, this is go to recipe if raw mango is slightly sweet (cant make it to mango dal). Another fantastic recipe Deeksha.
Thank you so much Smitha😊😍
The moment we talk about pickles, we remember our mom’s recipes, isn’t it! Pickles are so much associated with traditional recipes!!

The lockdown during Corona had me making my first mango pickle. Never had I imagined that I would ever make it in my life 😀
You are mad about birding and traveling , so there would be many memorable ‘firsts’ 😂
That looks delicious! I want to do this, thank you for sharing this!
Thank you very much for visiting the blog and appreciating the post ☺️
YAY. more mangos!
I am curious of the flavor of asafoetida. is it a common ingredient in India?
Oscar, asafoetida has very strong flavor, that’s why it is added very little. It is really good for digestion that’s why we add it in almost all savoury dishes. You will find it in any Indian store for sure.
Thank you, Deeksha. learned something good and new today! Thank you.
I especially love this sort of ingredient! The Mother Nature has created so many wonderful things for humans.
Sounds incredible! I just ordered a bottle of Asafoetida but if I were to try the recipe before is there anything I could use as a substitute?
Thank you very much Ashley. Sorry for late reply. Comment was in spam. You can simply go ahead with the rest of the preparation without asafoetida.
Thank you very much.
Thanks a lot Syamala☺️
I too make this often during mango season
Hereafter I need not search in youtube, I can directly read your recipes and make dishes. Thanks a lot 💐👏👏👏👏👏😍🥰
Thank you so much Padmaja for your kind words😊🤗😘
I am glad that you are finding recipes useful. Would be happy to hear from you if they suit your taste buds also ❤
Have a restful Sunday!
