BM # 4   Day 5

 

Ever heard of pickle being served in a potli ?….yes this is a typical sindhi pickle….i remember my hubby’s naani making it…but ever since we never went thru so much trouble of tying one serving in one small potli….we just filled it into a jar….but believe me the charm of the potli is really unique.The idea behind  the potlis must have been to  save it from getting spoilt.just remove a single potli..n then no putting bac into the jar!! 

 

1kg………………………..grated mango
50gms………………………oil
1tsp………………………..onion seeds(kalonji)
1tsp………………………..saunf
1tsp………………………..peppercorns
2tsp………………………..red chilly pwd
½ tsp………………………hing
3tsp………………………..vinegar
2 big pods…………………garlic
Salt to taste

 

Peel and grate the mangoes..
Heat oil to a smoking point n cool.
Boil water to a boiling point n cool.
To the grated mango add all the ingredients…Mix well.

 

Add another 50gms oil n 3 tsp vinegar to the boiled cooled water.
Take small square pieces of muslin cloth…put a spoonful of this mix on it.
Tie this into a tiny bag(potli).
After tieing all the potlis put them in a glass jar n pour the water solution ..so these potlis immerse in them.
Takes about 10 days to get ready. 
wonder y this name ?????

  1. Very interesting pickle….Seeing this potli kind for the first time. Amazed by the technique of single servings thro this method. If we are not making the potlis, then we won't require the vinegar+oil+water part, right?

  2. This is really very interesting pickle..I wonder why the name?..I thought it's a different one and not mango..pls so share the reason for being called this..:)

  3. I was expecting an okra/bhendi recipe! You comment explains it all…this technique is kind of new to me though… Interesting!
