1 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of white vinegar
1/4 cup of oil
2 tbsp of mustard seeds
1 tsp of turmeric powder

In a pan, heat the oil and add the mustard seeds. Once they start to crackle, add the turmeric powder, and red chili powder and sauté for a few seconds.
Add the diced mango and sauté for 2-3 minutes.
Add the sugar, vinegar, and salt. Mix well and cook for 10-12 minutes or until the sugar has dissolved and the mixture thickens.
Let the mixture cool and then transfer it to a clean and dry glass jar.
Allow the pickles to sit for a day before serving to allow the flavors to meld together.
You can store the pickles in the refrigerator for up to a month. You can adjust the amount of sugar and vinegar to suit your taste. It’s a great way to preserve the mangoes for a longer time and enjoy their sweet taste.
Is Sweet mango pickle good for health?
Sweet mango pickle, like most pickles, is high in salt, sugar, and oil. Consuming it in moderation may not have a significant impact on your health, but consuming it in large amounts could lead to health problems such as high blood pressure, weight gain, and diabetes.
The mangoes used in the pickle are a good source of vitamin C and other antioxidants, which can support the immune system and protect the body from damage caused by free radicals. However, the high sugar content in the pickle may negate the benefits of the antioxidants.
It is important to keep in mind that pickles should be consumed in moderation as part of a balanced diet. Pickles should not be considered a healthy food and should not replace whole fruits or vegetables in your diet.
It is recommended to check the nutritional information of the sweet mango pickle you are consuming, in order to have a better understanding of the sugar, salt, and oil content. And also consult with your physician before consuming it if you have any health conditions or concerns.
