Traditional mango pickle

Traditional mango pickle or aam ka achaar is a sour tangy pickle.

Most Indian homes make it during summers.Generally due to the bumper produce of mango trees.We had many mango trees in the garden.Thus, loads of fruit all season.

Some raw mangoes would fall on the ground.Hence, we would pickle raw mangoes or  ‘kachchi keri‘  and leave some to make aam panna. Pickling ensures nothing goes waste.


I love all kinds of mango pickles.Be it sweet Gujarati chunda or sour Andhra thokku.Cut mango both sweet and sour too.Eat the sweet one with parathas, while sour one with curd rice.Each has its own magic.After all, pickle is the spice of life!


Pickling can be a fun activity for kids too.It can help them understand flavors.Give them chopped mangoes.Let them have fun with spices.(Except if you use the red chilly powder).

They can enjoy mixing them as this recipe has no cooking involved.


There is something magical about pickling.It brings out the best in veggies.

Just like time does in all of us.

You can also try picking chickpeas with mangoes.It tastes amazing.
