Maavadu urugai recipe
Basically i am a big fan of pickle recipes right from my Childhood.I need to have at least one pickle variety for my curd rice.I don’t mind about the oil,salt and preservatives in itTongue .My appa is just the same like me.He can eat even paruppu sadam,lemon rice,rasam rice and other rice recipes with pickle as side dish.Even though we like all the pickles,Vadu manga urugai is our family favourite.My mom doesn’t make pickles getting afraid of fungus formation.So my dad used to tell a brahmin(yer)paati nearby our house to make this pickle for us.We used to store it for an year and relish it with curd rice.And now,after marriage,i became very happy when i saw my MIL making pickles at home.She is an expert in making many pickle varieties like onion,garlic,Raw mango,Nellikai,Naarthangai etc etc.This year,i bought baby mangoes in Bangalore and tried this pickle by myself following my MIL’s recipe.I was very happy and completely satisfied with the result.Thanks a ton Aunty for teaching me this easy and yummy maavadu pickle.I thank her everyday when i eat this pickle with a plateful of curd riceHappy.Don’t hesitate to try this baby mango pickle even if you are a beginner.Just follow the recipe,u will get it right.Lets see how to make maavadu/Vadu mangai pickle at home with stepwise pictures.

  • Cover the bowl with a cotton cloth and keep it under the sun for a day.Mix well once or twice in the middle.Remove and keep it closed over night.Repeat the same procedure for 5-7 days.Baby mangoes will start to shrink and soak well.Enjoy with curd rice.
You can eat the mangoes in the second day itself.But it needs at least a week to ten days to enjoy its best flavor and taste.

Enjoy !


Note

  • Some version calls for roasting the chillies along with methi seeds and hing. But my MIL always add it raw.So i too follow her method.
  • Adjust the quantity of red chillies as per your taste.
  • U can also replace red chillies with chilli powder.Use Kashmiri chilli powder for best color.
  • Mustard seeds gives a nice flavor to this pickle.So don’t skip it.But do not add more as it may give a bitter taste. 
  • This pickle tastes the best only after a week.So let it dry under sun.Do this patiently.
