Mango ginger is a favorite pickle for me. I used to have it in bagala bath (seasoned curd rice.) lovely taste and aroma it has, my mother used to prepare a pickle in this ginger and I love it . When I saw mango ginger in hypermarket here in khobar. I got this idea to make pickle and asked her for the recipe . I bought 300gms of this ginger and got a ½ bottle pickle. We can store this pickle in refrigerator.....pickle making is a process which makes us to maintain our patience and improves concentration in making a dish cos taste of pickle matters all... ......so here we go to the recipe.... …..
