Mango Ginger Pickle Recipe with step by step instructions.తెలుగు వెర్షన్.
Mango Ginger/Mamidi Allam is available during winter season. It looks like normal ginger but smells exactly like Raw Mango. It has no bitter taste like normal ginger and less pungent.it is used in Ayurvedic Medicine as it has many medicinal values. Mango Ginger helps in reducing the cough, indigestion, inflammation etc.
when I was a child my grandmother used to prepare this pickle. she used to mix a very hot rice with some ghee or butter and the pickle and give us a mouthful morsels. whenever I remember those days I can still feel the taste of her morsels and her love.
Coming back to the recipe. Usually ginger tastes bitter.so we add jaggery to reduce the bitterness.tamarind is used to neutralize the spiciness of red chili powder. Jaggery is not used in Telangana and some other regions. But Andhra people use jaggery while making Mango ginger pickle or Normal ginger pickle. if you want to make the same pickle with normal ginger you need to add more jaggery than mentioned in this recipe as normal ginger is little more pungent and bitter than Mango Ginger.
This pickle tastes heaven when served with hot rice and ghee. It can also be served with all breakfast recipes like dosa, upma, bonda, vada etc. I hope you try and enjoy this pickle recipe.
