Raw Mango Gojju

This awe inspiring sweet and sour recipe is very popular amongst the kannadigas.  
 I would like to dedicate this recipe to one of the elders in our family who is not with us today and was indeed a very great host and cook, which I would like to call as

“Mrs Geetha Sitaram Rao’s Mango Gojju” 

This  pickle originated from Karnataka has not only a very unique taste but is an easy  quick recipe
Although the core ingredient is the mango, the soaked methi seeds adds a distinctive flavour to the dish!


1 Large Mango
¼ Cup Methi (Fenugreek)Seeds
2-3 Red Chillies (broken into half)
½ Tsp Red Chilli Powder
¼  Tsp Turmeric Powder
½ Tsp Mustard Seeds
Lime Sized Jaggery
2 Tbs Oil
