How to make mango pickle soft
Question by Satya:
My mango pickles in the jaar are very hard to eat.
Even after keeping the jaar under sun does not show any positive result.
My jaar also contains too much oil then how to make them soft?Answer:
Your mango pickle may be hard because of too much oil added and too early.
If you like your pickle soft, do not add oil immediately after making the mango pickle.
Add only salt and turmeric as required and keep aside for 2-3 days.
This will help the mango to release some juice and absorb salt and become soft.
Add other spices and mix well with a dry spoon. Keep for a week and shake the pickle jar once everyday.
After pickle has absorbed the flavors of the spices and released some sourness in the juice, add the oil, make the tempering and mustard seeds, hing etc.
Shake the jar/ stir the pickle for a month with a dry spoon.
