6 to 8 medium sized mangoes
100 grams green chillies (wash and dry)
50 grams yellow mustard
2 tablespoon fenugreek seeds
½ teaspoon turmeric powder
6 tablespoons salt
1 cup Sesame oil or refined oil
½ cup vinegar
½ cup sugar

Cut them into medium size pieces.
Throw away the seeds.
Mix the mango pieces with the turmeric, salt, the Chillie-fenugreek-mustard paste and sugar in a stone jar and leave aside for a week.
Shake the jar everyday so that all the mango pieces soak well. Mix with a wooden spoon.
After a week, heat the oil in a pan till smoky. Cool and pour over the pickle in the jar.
