MANGO HERBAL SWEET PICKLE is an unique sweet after meal dessert. You can eat it after any type of meal or just itself. Children also like very much this pickle. 
It contains no chemical or preservative. Still you can easily keep it for a year. 



2 kg green Mango (cut into large pieces)

1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp Bengali five spices
4-5 dry red chili
3 tsp turmeric powder
4-5 tsp salt

Don't peel off mangoes. cut into large pieces. Just make four pieces of a mango.
Mix it well with 3 tsp salt and 1 tsp turmeric powder. Dry it under direct sunlight for 8-10 hrs.
After that dry roast ground cumin, ground coriander, five spices, dry red chili and blend together.
Heat a pan, put all those mangoes, add sugar, add salt, turmeric powder. cover it with lid, let it boil for 25-30 minutes in slow flame.

If you like, you may replace sugar with jaggery, but this pickle with sugar tastes more.

After 30 minutes, open lid, add blended spices. Mix well.
Let it cool down for another 15-20 minutes. 
Keep  it in any glass or bone china jar. Just put it under sunlight occasionally, once in two months.
