Cut Mango pickle(Mamidikaaya mukkalu Pacchadi)

This pickle is a must have dish for any occasion during summer in my childhood. My mom makes it very often since everyone in the family loves it. Me and my sis ate half of it while my mom was making it. This is my entry to Indira's JFI.

Here is the recipe: (It's very simple)
Unripe Mango: 1 (cut into small pieces, approx 1 inch pieces)
Tamarind Extract: 1 or 2 tsp (depends on the sour taste of Mango)
Salt and Chilli Powder: Per your taste
Garlic: 1 Clove
Cumin seeds: 1 tsp

Ingredients for Popu/Tadka:
1 tsp Oil
Mustard seeds
Split black gram dal
Dried red chillies

Mix Mango pieces with tamarind extract, salt and chilli powder with hand.Mince Garlic and cumin seeds to paste. Combine this with the above mixture.Add Popu to this. Thats it. Our dish is ready.

This tastes very good with plain dal (Mudda pappu) and ghee.
