A Mouthwatering Side Dish in Five Minutes!

Many people love pickles. Though there are a wide variety of pickles that you can buy in a store, I often prefer to buy authentic mango pickles. Tender pickled mangoes immersed in spicy sauce are crunchy and awesome.

Preserved mangoes can be stored for two or three years. Though the color will become darker over time, they will still be good to eat. I made this side dish from a batch that I made some time ago.

Pickled mangoes impart many health benefits. They contain antioxidants and can aid in digestion.

This pickled mango side dish (known as uppinakai tambuli in the Kannada language) is yogurt-based and mildly spicy. Pair it with some steamed rice; eat at the beginning of the meal. This keeps your stomach cool; acts as an appetizer as well.

Now, let's learn how to make this dish.

Instructions

  1. Roast cumin seeds with a few drops of ghee. Set aside to cool.
  2. Wash pickled mangoes in water. Roughly chop them. Put them into a mixer or blender.
  3. Add grated coconut, roasted cumin, and broken dry red chili. Grind, adding curd or water, to get a smooth paste. Collect it in a mixing bowl.
  4. Be careful while adding salt because the pickled mangoes already contain some salt in them.
  5. Now, add remaining curd and salt. Mix well. Add more water if required to adjust the consistency (it should be moderately thick).
  6. Adding a tempering to this side dish will enhance the taste.
  7. To make the tempering: Heat ghee in a small pan. Throw in mustard seeds. Let them crackle. Add curry leaves. Mix once. Turn off the heat. Pour the tempering on top of Uppinakai Tambuli.
  8. Mix once.
  9. Serve this yummy side dish with steamed rice. Eat the combo at the beginning of the meal, as an appetizer.

Important Tip

I used pickled mangoes picked from the actual mango pickle. These tender mangoes are salty and spicy because they have absorbed salt and spices from the pickle. Therefore, I used less salt and a smaller portion of the dry red chili in my recipe.
