Mango - 4 fresh firm sour mangoes
Red chilly powder - 4 cups
Mustard powder - 5 cups
Salt - 4 cups
Turmeric powder - 1/4 cup
Fenugreek powder - 1/4 cup
Sesame oil - 1 kg
Garlic - 100 gms or 30 flakes

Wash and dry the mangoes. Wipe the outer clean. Cut the mangoes into big pieces. Rub all the pieces with about 4 tbsp of oil.

In a shallow vessel, mix chilly powder, mustard powder, salt, fenugreek powder and turmeric powder. Add 1 cup of oil to it and mix to a fine paste. Add the peeled garlic cloves to it. Add the mango pieces to the mixture so that all the pieces are coated with the paste. Transfer the mango pieces to a jar. Add the remaining paste on top of the pieces. Cover the jar with a piece of cloth and leave it for 3 days.

Add 1 cup of sesame oil to the mango pieces on the 4th day and turn the pieces up and down using a dry wooden spoon. Leave it for a week more. After a week add the remaining sesame oil and mix well. Spicy Andhra style mango pickle is ready. This stays good for about an year.
