Firm and unripe mangoes are choosen for this pickle. This is an easy to make mango pickle, generally made in every Bengali household, where 'paanch phoron' is used. The mango flesh is cooked easilly within the jaggery and sugar syrup and the pickle is thickens a bit. Mango absorbs all the flavors of the spices, very luscious and yummy. You can store it in refrigerator it should last for 1 year.

1/2 tsp Turmeric Powder
1/3 tsp Cumin Seeds (jeera)
1/3 tsp Fennel Seeds (saunf)
1/3 tsp Fenugreek Seeds (methi)
1/3 tsp Nigella Seeds (kalonji)
1/2 tsp Mustard Seeds (rai)
3 Whole Dried Red Chillies
1 tbsp Oil (preferably mustard oil)

METHOD:
Firstly, wash and wipe dry the raw mangoes. Cut mangoes in slices, discard the seeds.
Dry roast cumin seeds, fennel seeds, fenugreek seeds, nigella seeds, mustard seeds and 3 whole dried red chillies for 2 minutes on medium heat. Let it cool a little. Pound coarsely and set aside.
Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Add asafoetida in it. Saute for few seconds, add mangoes and turmeric powder. Saute for another 3 minutes on medium heat. Add jaggery and sugar directly, lower the heat now.
