Sweet mango pickle (Gulyo Aap ko Achar)

I wish I had known how to make this a lone long time ago. I learnt it only when my MIL was here and I am loving it. It is the best alternative for laspsi ko achar as lapsi is not available here in Australia.

Ingredients

  • 2 kg raw Mangoes
  • 1/2 cup Regular Brown Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Red Chilli Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Coriander Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Fennel seeds
  • 3 teaspoon Oil
  • A pinch of Asafoetida (Hing)
  • A pinch of Black rock salt (Birae Nun)
  • Salt to taste
