How we make the Mango Pickle:

Mango varieties used for production of this pickle includes Malda and Kalkatiya. They are all tangy & juicy varieties grown in Darbhanga district.

Spices are mostly sourced locally from farmers, and bazar samitis in Samastipur. We buy whole spices and clean, roast, ground them in our kitchen-factory.

The production process begins with raw green mangoes arriving early morning. As soon as they arrive, sorting begins. We normally select mangoes as long as they are not completely ripened.

The mangoes are peeled, and washed a couple of times. After it has been left in the sun for a couple of hours to dry after washing, the whole peeled mango is cut into small pieces. And salt is added to it. The salted cut mangoes are left untouched for a couple of mangoes, and thereafter sugar is added. The quantity of sugar is about equal to the weight of the mangoes.

After a couple of hours, the mixture of salt, sugar, and mango moisture turns thin.

Now, this mixture 10 KG at a time is cooked for around 30 minutes on low flame. We also add the spices to the mix while cooking. In about half an hour, the mangoes turn soft, and the चासनी thickens.

This is a very tricky pickle to store. The martabaans used to store this pickle are washed twice, left in the sun for 3 days, and then heated over a slow flame for 30 secs before being used for storage.

In Mithila, Mango Khatta-Meetha is the go-to chutni / pickle to eat with Samosas in the evening. Kids love this pickle with poori, paranthas, and almost everything else.

Got with open cap

Got with open cap everything was spilled inside the carton, this time was disappointed

Far below expectations

Poor packaging-the mix had leaked out. Mango pieces are large with the inner part (seed outer) also present. The mango pieces have not properly absorbed the liquid and ase still very hard.

Reminds of childhood in every mouthful!

I recieved both my pickles. Special mango pickle n teekhi Hari Mirch pickle. Must say, both are true to the taste. Reminds of childhood in every mouthful!

Namaste Mrilika ji. Thank you for this endorsement of our pickles. We are glad it reminds you of childhood
You also oblige with the unique insight of making pickles less spicy so that they can be loved by small children as well. I can't say that we'll be able to make this change right away as the mango season is almost over. However, from next season onwards, and with new variety of pickles we launch, we'll have two versions of every product - one the traditional Mithila way, and the second a toned down less spicy version. This is a request a couple of our customers have already made, and your suggestion adds to our confidence to go ahead and make it happen. Thank you!

It does feel like home.

It does feel like home. I had ordered with a lot of scepticism but was transported back in time, the two pickles that I had ordered were unbelievably home-like and decadent. Keep up the good work.

Smitaji, thank you for the leap of faith. It's a really difficult task running a small business, especially for two home-makers who are first time-entrepreneurs. Tomorrow morning, when I show this feedback of yours to Kalpana, Uma, and the team, I'm sure they'll dance a little with joy, and more so with a sense of satisfaction - that they are able to deliver on the promise they started the business with.
And I tonight, am filled with pride and joy for my wonderful team - replying to your wonderful feedback.
Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you - thousand times over
