|Punjabi Mango Pickle / Aam ka Achaar|
I'm a pickle fan. My mom used to keep this pickle with roti for my lunch box. I survived with this lunch for many years. Even though i'm a south indian but i never liked rice for lunch box. My eating habits always confused people :)
I searched online to get the exact recipe of Punjabi style Pickle. Finally i stepped on to Dassana's Site and tried her recipe. My husband (pakka "south indian") who never tasted north indian style pickles before, was totally surprised with its taste. I'm planning to prepare this pickle every year to keep my memories alive.
The special aroma of this pickle comes from mustard oil. Few people doesn't like raw mustard oil smell. You can heat the oil for few seconds and then cool it completely. Now you can add this oil to the pickle mixture
I am not at all satisfied with my photo this time. I shall try to upload more photos next time.
