It has a super acidic flavor profile with little bits of sweetness coming through from the mango. Complimented with the nuttiness of the sprouted chickpeas, the pickle is like a breath of fresh air. It’s light, spicy, and most importantly, nutritious!

The fermentation process that takes place over the course of multiple days develops probiotic bacteria that help in digestion and regulate the production of stomach acid. With the sprouted chickpeas that are super high in protein and low in fat, the pickle is a well rounded condiment!

Enjoy it with a fresh thali or curry and naan and savor its tangy, acidic flavor. It’s the best pop of color to brighten up your meal!

Instructions
Pickle Recipe:
  1. Rinse the mango with water and then dry it. Peel and dice it into 1/2 inch cubes. Put that in a bowl. Grate some mango and add it in the same bowl.

  2. Add the sprouted chana (see recipe below), salt, turmeric, and yellow mustard seeds and mix well. Keep it aside on the counter and cover with a cheesecloth for 24 hours. Within that 24 hours keep it in the sun for 3-4 hours.

  3. Roast the fennel seeds, fenugreek seeds, and kalonji seeds for 1 minute until they are fragrant. Grind them in a mortar and pestle coarsely.

  4. Now mix the roasted spices, pickle masala, green chilies to the mango mixture.

  5. Heat the mustard oil in a small pot until it reaches its smoking point. Let it cool completely and add it to the mango mixture.

  6. Taste the pickle and adjust it to your taste. The taste should be slightly salty as it’s a compliment for a main dish. Leave it on the counter for two to three days to let the ingredients ferment together and develop the acidity. Now, keep it in the fridge. You can enjoy it for 2 months!

Recipe Notes
  • If you want to use less oil, you can use only 2 tbsp of the mustard oil because it’s just supposed to cover all the mangoes.
  • Make sure the chickpeas are dry before adding them to the pickle otherwise the pickle will mold.
  • You can increase the spice level to your taste by adding some red chili powder.

    Interesting recipe. Where did the sugar come from? What is the serving size? Thanks

    The nutritional value is actually for the entire jar. The sugar is coming from the chickpeas and mango (it’s all natural not added)!
