About Manga Achar

I really love this pickle as it can be made real quick, without any hassle. Here’s an interesting breakdown of the know-how of the Nurukku Manga Achar or the Kerala Style Instant Mango Pickle:

Name: In Malayalam language,

‘Nurukku‘ is chopped small or cut pieces

‘Manga‘ is a mango

‘Achar‘ is a pickle

Name: In Malayalam language,
‘Kadugu’ means mustard seeds

‘Manga‘ is a mango

‘Achar‘ is a pickle

Ingredients: This Instant Mango Pickle uses unripe mangoes, mustard seeds, curry leaves and some spices in its preparation. It also does not require sun-drying, neither does it need much of cooking.

Time taken: The best part of this pickle recipe is that it can be made in less than 15 minutes.

On Weight: As seen in the step-by-step pictures, I have used 4 small unripe mangoes which together weighed 300 grams. In the video, I have used one large mango weighing about 300 grams. The weight and size of the mangoes will decide this number. Ensure that after chopping the mangoes into cubes, you should have about 1 to 1.25 cups.

Scaling: You may decrease or increase the quantity of ingredients of this Kerala Style Instant Mango Pickle by halving or doubling them.
