No Oil Sweet & Sour Mango Pickle (With Jaggery or Sugar)

Jump to Recipe

This No Oil Mango Pickle is a Punjabi style sweet and sour pickle recipe made without green unripe mangoes, jaggery and spices. The spices added are nigella seeds, fenugreek seeds and red chilli powder.

It is an easy, simple no fuss sweet and sour mango pickle without oil and tastes good with roti, paratha, stuffed paratha and even simple dal-rice. You can just have it plain or straight from the jar.

No Oil Mango Pickle with Jaggery

Two ways of making this pickle

  1. Cook everything together or keep the pickle in sunlight for 2 to 3 days.
  2. Both ways the jaggery that is used in the pickle thickens a bit. If you cook you will get a softer texture of mangoes. If you keep in the sun then the mangoes will have a little crispness to them. You decide how you would love to make this pickle.
  3. I kept the mango pickle in the sun for 3 days and what I got was a sweet, spicy, sour pickle with somewhat crisp mango pieces that had absorbed all the flavors of the spices.

Takeaways

A no oil pickle recipe. My suggestion is to keep this pickle in the refrigerator as no oil is added. Yet the jaggery and spices do help in preserving the pickle. Though still better to keep in the refrigerator. Make sure you use clean utensils and a clean sterilized bottle to store the mango pickle.
A very easy recipe. 
✓ Mix everything and keep the pickle mixture in sunlight for 3 to 4 days.

3: Mix very well. The jaggery will melt and the whole mixture will look watery. Keep in the sun for 2 to 3 days till the jaggery syrup thickens and the mango pieces tenderize a bit. While keeping in sunlight, cover the bowl with a fine sieve or a thin muslin cloth, so that dust etc does not fall on the pickle. Instead of drying in the sun you can also just cook everything together till most of the water is evaporated and the syrup has a sticky consistency but not a thread consistency – like one thread or two thread.
