Green Mango Relish with Whole Spices

 

One reason to love summer is fruits! And the best of them all is of course Mango, the king of fruits :)

We are gorging on the freshest and juiciest summer mangos these days. They are delicious not just when they are ripe and sweet but also when they are unripe, green, sour and crunchy! Green mango slice with a sprinkling of salt is a favorite guilt free snack!  They are also perfect for pickles, sauces and relishes. Preserved in these forms they can be enjoyed for the rest of the year when they are not freshly available in the market. India has several great mango pickle recipes, sweet or spicy.

Here’s a recipe for a simple relish that is quick and easy to make. I have cooked grated green mangos in sugar syrup with whole spices, cinnamon and cloves. Flavors are simple and colour is a beautiful golden yellow.

They are great as a spread on various breads and crackers. I also use mine is sandwiches and salad dressings for extra flavor. If stored in an airtight container in your refrigerator, it will stay fresh for a few weeks.

Enjoy this simple recipe as making relish and pickles don’t always have to be complicated and time consuming!!

  • Sugar – 2 cups
  • Water – 4 cups
  • Grated green mango – 4 cups
  • Cloves – 10-12
  • Cinnamon – 4 inch stick

Place sugar water and the whole spices in a vessel and bring it to a boil. Add the grated green mangoes and let it simmer for 5 to 10 minutes. When the mango starts to disintegrate, turn off the heat. I like to keep it a little watery as it tends to get thicker when it cools down.

Once cool, store this in an airtight container in the refrigerator.

    Hi Chinmayie, landed here from foodgawker and love your pictures and the site. The pictures of raw mango are beautiful. My home town is Bangalore as well and makes me nostalgic.

    Anything mango, I’m sold. Really miss the mango season in Kerala and Hyderabad so much. This relish looks too good :-)

  • Misha

    This relish looks delish !! Does this keep for long? I’d love to make a ton and put it in the fridge while Mango season is still on.

    • Chinmayie

      Thanks Misha! It should last for a few months when refrigerated but I can’t really say for sure as I haven’t stored it for that long! we usually end up eating it all in weeks! lol

    That relish looks delicious! I would probably just eat it straight from the jar. I agree with you too, mango is the king of the fruits.
