Mangoes are such a versatile and an interesting fruit. You can add them in smoothies, dips, or simply make pickles. This is the best side-dish and add a boost of nutrition to any meal! Mango pickle, also known as achar, is super easy to prepare and has complex flavors. It’s a tangy condiment that adds an extra zing to every meal.


Raw Mango Pickle is made with raw mangoes and flavoured with Indian spices. Achar or pickle is a great condiment which you will find in almost every Indian households. You can also make it spicy or mild to suit your taste by adjusting the amount of spices.



We always ate homemade pickles made by our mother as we don’t like the pickles that are sold outside in markets and you never know about the quality of ingredients they are using in their pickles. Also, we try to avoid high sodium products so we love homemade pickles and it’s very easy to make your own pickle instead of buying them at the store.
