Magaya Pickle Recipe -- Sun dried Raw Mango Pickle -- How to make Magaya pickle Recipe

Hi, Thank you friends and viewers. Today I am posting how to make Magaya pickle recipe.
This is another variety of raw mango pickle specially made in Telugu states. It comes in handy when we don't have any chutneys or side dishes for dosa or idly. Just add some curd and chopped onions, makes a very good side dish for dosa and idly. This pickle should be made only during a hot sunny day as we have to dry the mango pieces under the sun. Some people make it without Sun drying also, it is called as 'Pachi Magaya'.

All the precautions and rules in making the pickle stands good as Avakaya to this pickle also. Choose firm, mature and sour mangoes only for making this pickle. The varieties which are usually preferred are Tella Gulabi, Rasalu, Suvarna Rekhalu. If they are not available use any sour mangoes.

This pickle lasts over a year. So, prepare it in a clean and dry place and also use only dry and clean spoons to mix and to serve.
