    1. Take three medium sized mangoes. Wash thoroughly with running water and pat dry with a clean towel. Cut into small pieces along with ski n. Before cutting, just taste the mango skin and check whether it is sour o not. If so remove the skin and then chop into small pieces. 
    2. Add enough salt and mix well.
    3. Let it rest for about 2 hours untouched. water will release from the mango pieces within this period. 
    4. After 2 hours, heat gingelly oil (sesame oil). When hot add mustard seeds and let it crackle completely.
    5. Once the crackling  is over, add curry leaves and wait till the crackle sound stops.
    6. Then add chopped green chilies and garlic. Saute till the garlic turns light golden in color. A nice aroma will come at this stage.
    7.  Add masala powders, the turmeric, chili, fenugreek and asafoetida powders. Turn the flame to low or you can turn off the gas at this stage to prevent burning.
    8. Saute till the powders roasted nicely and the raw smell leaves.
    9. Pour in boiled water (1/2 to 3/4 cup). Let it  boil on high flame till the oil starts to separate. Never add normal water in pickles. Always use only boiled water.

    10. Then pour 3 to 4 tablespoons of vinegar depending on the taste of your mangoes.
    11. Switch off the flame and wait for three to four minutes till the mix cool down a little bit.
    12. Add in the chopped mangoes.
    13. Mix well with a dry spoon. 
    14. Once cooled down completely, transfer into a clean dry glass container. Close tightly and keep in refrigerator for three to four days untouched before use. Usually in Sadyas, it is prepared in the previous night and then serve. But I recommend you to keep in fridge for a few days before serve. By this time, the mango pieces will be softened and it will absorb the spices and will turn more tasty.

    15. Serve and enjoy.

    Happy cooking
