Mango avakaya/pickle - In-laws recipe

Doesnt it look awesome and tempting? The mango season has started back in India and it is the time when we too want to eat the newly made chutneys, whether they may be instant or they are for long term. So I got this raw mangoes from store the other day and decided to it for my baby's first birthday occasion. Guess what the total chutney above is finished. I was happy. So here is the simple recipe for above:

Raw Mangos - 2 washed, peeled and chopped into very small pieces
Red chilli powder - 3-5 tbsp (depends on how spicy you like)
Salt - 3-4 tbsp (definitely use less salt than red chilli powder)
Turmeric - 1/4 tbsp
Fenugreek powder - 1-1and1/2 tbsp
Oil - 3 table spoons
mustard seeds - 1/2 tbsp
asafoetida - 1/4 tbsp
Red chillies - 2 no. cut into small lengths

Method of preparation
1) Take a serving bowl and add mangos chopped into it. Now put the salt and mix them thoroughly with hand. Try sqeezing the mango pieces after you mix it. This will mix the mixture nicely.

2)Now add turmeric, red chilli powder and fenugreek powder (menthi podi). do not mix it now.

3) Prepare for tadka by adding oil into a small tadka bowl and then add mustards seeds. Wait until they splutter, add asafoetida and red chillies and turn off the stove.

4) Add tadka to the mixture in step 2 and mix everything. If you feel that you need to add more oil, you can do so by adding little warm/hot oil to the mixture. Your chutney is ready. You can directly serve it or you can wait for few hours which will make then mangos taste even better as they grasp all the flavors nicely.
