We have “Amli” and “uman” that is raw mango preserved in brine and fish curry with rice at Kaki’s place.
Before I made these beauties I rang her up to confirm the method.
Her Daughter-in-Law Sharayu(she is my friend too) brought the stones and guided me as to arrange the mangoes in salt. Thanks Sharayu you are great.
Since I did not have a big enough plastic tub to accommodate these raw mangoes and the stones to weigh them down I put them in the big strong plastic bag.
8 days under the rock and these are ready.Then transferred them to the bottle.. For 30 mangoes I used a bit more than 1/2 kg of coarse salt.
Serve with rice, steaming hot,daal, pickle and papad tastes as good!!
