Punjabi Mango Pickle / Aam ka Achaar

Punjabi Mango pickle or Aam ka achar preparation is completely different from the Andhra style or South Indian mango pickle. It is a very popular pickle that goes well with parathas. There are so many varieties of mango pickle and each has its own uniqueness. Punjabi Mango pickle is made with Indian spices and mustard oil. But I have replaced the mustard oil with gingelley oil. This pickle has a distinct flavour and aroma when compared with South Indian pickles. I have a friend from North India and when she made this pickle, I loved it. This is less spicy and has a shelf life of one year.  It will take less time to make this pickle. The main step is in drying the mango pieces and making the pickle masala.

A lip smacking pickle.. I’ve not made the Punjabi style mango pickle at home but love it. Amazing how most of the mango pickle making method is same but the difference comes in the spices and oil we use.

At my home me and my husband are big fan of mango pickle, we usually eat with our meals. Your pickle is just amazing, I never tried at home because it took so much time but it’s worth it. I loved your recipe so much, will try it for sure. Such a lovely share

I used to dry roast the masala then grinned it into course powder. I also add a little bit of sugar that enhances the colour of pickle and never add mustard powder.
Love to try your version.
