Avakaya is a popular pickle that is prepared by the Andhra people in the southern part of India. It is made by using raw mangoes.
Now add half of the cooled oil and mix well.
Use sour raw mango to make this mango pickle. They are the best when the season just starts for Mangoes that is in May June.
Cut them into even pieces. You can also get them cut from the vendors who have cutting machines. They sit all over the local vegetable market in India.
Make sure to cover the pickle with oil at all times. It will ensure it doesn't go bad.
This Andhra style pickle uses Sesame Oil. Replacing it with any other oil will not give the same flavour.
Always use a clean dry glass jar to store the pickle. A plastic one will leave a smell in the pickle which will be very non appetising.
