Home Snacks & Sides Vegan Indian Mango Pickle Recipe


Indian style pickles are usually quite a chore to prepare. Some recipes involve leaving the pickles in a jar in the sun for a matter of months. Not this one. This recipe for vegan indian mango pickle only takes 2 days (less if you are impatient) and are highly passable.


  • 2 mangos
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime zest
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated peeled ginger root
  • 4 teaspoons minced fresh chiles
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 4 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons black or yellow mustard seeds


1) Peel and cut the mangos into small cubes. In a bowl mix the mango cubes, lime zest, lime juice, ginger, chiles and salt.

2) In a small skillet on medium-high heat, warm the oil and then add the mustard seeds, stirring until the seeds pop. Cook covered for about a minute. Add the hot oil and mustard seeds to the bowl and stir well. Cover and refrigerate for a day or two to allow the flavors to meld. The pickles will be spicy hot at first, but will mellow with time. Keep them refrigerated in a closed container for a week.
