Ingredients:

Sour Raw Mango 1
Red Chile Powder 1 cup
White Sesame Seeds Powder 1 cup
Salt 3/4 cup
Sesame Oil 2 cups

Method of preparation:

Wash, clean and pat dry mango.
Cut the raw mango with the seed into big chunks.

If the mango is not sour enough, reduce the quantity of salt.
In a clean mixing bowl, mix raw mango chunks, red chile powder, sesame seeds powder and salt together with half a cup of oil.
Then transfer all the mixed ingredients in to a clean sterilized jar.
Leave the jar for 3 days and on 4th day add remaining oil until most of the mango chunks are soaked.
Seal the jar with a muslin cloth and leave it 5 – 10 days for the pickle to develop.
If taken care to use dry utensils and to not expose to humidity (moisture spoils the pickle), the pickle stays fresh for a year.

Notes: White sesame seeds powder is nothing but the finely ground white sesame seeds.
