Uppumanga (Raw mangoes in brine)

Last week, I had been to Indian store, when I saw the medium sized kaddu mangas (Baby raw mangoes), I could not believe my eyes. But it was very expensive, so I bought  only 2 pounds ,which was  only 14 mangoes.  

Manga uppilittathu with chilies is a delicious accompaniment with Kuthari Kanji.( I will post the recipe later).  This is oil free pickle.


Baby Raw Mangoes                        14 No.
Crushed Red chili Flakes                1 Tbsp.
Turmeric powder                           1/8 Tsp.
Green chilies                                 6 No.  (silted)
Raw Salt                                     1/8 cup-  ¼ cup
Boiled and cooled water                as required


  • Wash and wipe the mangoes with paper towel and allow the mangoes to air dry.
  • Heat water in a pan, add salt and turmeric powder. When the water boils rapidly switch off the stove and Allow to cool.
  • Arrange the mangoes in the glass bottle or in brine.
  • Add the mango into it . Then add the chopped green chilies and Red chili flakes.
  • Now add the cooled salt water in it.  When you are pouring them into the jars, push the mangoes inside such that they get submerged in the water.   There should be a layer of liquid on top.
  • Do not refrigerate now. 
  • Depending on where you live, the mangoes take their time to soak up.
  • I refrigerate it after the third day and it stays good for at least few months.
  • It’s ready to eat with curd rice.
