March 23, 2015 Sadhana Padmanabhan 0 Comments



 In India, Manga Inji (Curcuma manga/ mango Ginger/White Turmeric  ) is sold along with lemon and Fresh Green Pepper on the sidewalks.  It is very popular pickle in South India.  Manga Inji resembles a ginger, but tastes like a raw mango. My sister in law Nalini gave some manga Inji(Thanks Nalini). Next day itself, I made two types of pickles.


Ingredients:
Chopped Manga Inji                     1 cup
Lemon                                           1 no.
Finely chopped Green chilies       4 no.

Turmeric powder                          1/8 Tsp.
 Curry leaves                                Few
