Mavina midi uppinakayi or tender mango pickle recipe explained with step by step pictures. Mavina midi uppinakayi or tender mango pickle is very popular pickle in Karnataka. Coming to the name "mavina midi uppinakayi", tender mango translates to "mavina-midi" and pickle translates to "uppinakyi" in kannada language. Tender mango, red chilli and mustard seeds are the three main ingredients in this pickle. Turmeric, black pepper and asafoetida are the other optional ingredients.
The tender mangoes used for this pickle are wild mangoes, which naturally grow in the forest. They are more sour and full of mango flavour. We will start getting these tender mangoes in the month of February-March.
The tender mango pickle recipe, which I explained here is from my mother. My mother in law also prepares in the similar way but she adds more mustard seeds. The taste and quality of the pickle varies largely depending on the type of mangoes used. The quality and spiciness of the chillis also plays an important role. Pickling tender mangoes takes time. Not like instant gooseberry pickle and tomato pickle. For this mango pickle you have to wait atleast for a month.
Generally tender mango pickle is prepared in large quantity. At a time 500 or 1000 or 2000 mangoes are pickled. These pickles are having long shelf life. So when good tender mangoes are available, they are pickled in large numbers and used for 1 or 2 years.
Preparation time: 1 month
