Sweet Mango Pickle

This is my all time favourite!!!! whenever i make this i get reminded of my childhood days where my grand mom used to make this for me n my cousins... we used to relish with curd rice. we all used to sit around our grand mom and she used to give curd rice on our palms and we used to lick mango pickle along with it. This week as i was passing by i found mangoes on the trees ...wat a beautiful sight ...i stopped my car and i plucked enough mangoes
this ia a very simple recipe


Mangoes - 1 no (refer pic below for size)

Chilli powder - 1/4 tsp
Mustard seeds - 6 to 7 seeds
