Avakaya is very popular Mango Pickle delicacy from Andhra Pradesh. In India Summer seasonal fruit is Mango. Almost all parts of India busy in making different types of pickles with raw mangoes in summer season.Today's my post is one of the most popular pickle from southern part of India. Main ingredients for this pickle are Mustard seeds,best  Raw Mangoes,Good Chilli Powder,Nice gingely oil and Salt. Todays my recipe is famous Andhra delicacy:


 Avakaya - Mango Pickle

    4. Now grind  Mustard seeds in a food processor like fine powder.(here i used mustard seeds,( small size mustrd 75g,big size mustard seeds 75g,)bigger mustard seeds reduce spiciness  in pickle,smaller mustards increase the spiciness in the pickle, so balancing the picke i mixed both the seeds.Before grinding mustard seeds dry it under sun 30 min.,otherwise microwave these mustard seeds for 3 to 4min.)

    24. This post has been very helpful to crosscheck my doing this pickle recipe today. This is the most traditional Andhra type, tastes good, & lasts longer than a year. Thanks for the post. I think asafaoetida is optional, & I don't know if it could improve the aroma, as Aavakaya itself has its own aroma.
