maa--inji pickle 
I love maa inji a lot.Basically i love ginger based recipes like ginger pachadi,Puli inji(kerala style) very much.So this mango ginger is no exception.Actually I wanted to post maa inji thokku, but before that i thought of sharing this simple & easy maa inji pickle,my MIL’s version.I tried two different methods and shared the same.Try whichever u like.Both can be made easily with simple ingredients.Its a great accompaniment for curd rice and dal riceSmile.
