I already have an instant mango pickle recipe (mangai pesaral recipe) in this space which has a shelf life of just 2 days when refrigerated. This cut mango pickle will stay good for a month, if refrigerated and handled properly. It is not only delicious but it is so easy to make this pickle. As it is mango season now, I wanted to share this raw cut mango pickle recipe.

  1. Hi padhu.. I forgot to towel dry the mango aft washing it and have made the pickle. Think there might be some moisture content. Will it get spoiled soon?

    1. Yes, if there is moisture, it will get spoiled soon. So keep it in the refrigerator and take only needed quantity in a small cup everyday.Do not take the whole bottle outside and then put it back inside the refrigerator again.

  2. Excellent methodology. Step by step instructions helps even a novice to be a perfect professional cook.

  3. Thanks for this recipe. I am using this recipe for the second time today. It suits me very well as I am a working woman and I don't have the time for the longer process of keeping it in the sun.

  4. Really helpful. Thank you so much.
