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.
RECIPE: The Process of Preparation
starts with the mangoes arriving early 6 AM from the farms to our kitchen-factory. They are mostly plucked the last evening. The first step is sort out the mangoes for any pieces that are damaged, or have ripened, and not good for pickling.
After sorting, the mangoes are cut into small pieces, typically 1 inch in size. And immediately dipped into water at normal temperature. Moreover, it’s washed 2-3 times in fresh water before being kept out in the sun to dry for 3 hours.
After a few hours, the cut mango pieces are moved into the pickling vessel, and 2 spices are added – Salt & Turmeric. This mixture is left untouched for 24 hours till the moisture from within the mango pickle seeps out. The cut pieces are now ready for the actual process of pickling.
A batch of masala is prepared, mixing all the spices in their appropriate proportions. And added to these cut pieces covered in salt & turmeric, along with mustard oil. Everything is mixed well.
The pickle now needs to be sun-dried for 8-10 days before it’s ready to be stored in martabans. It’s made sure that the top of pickle, when it’s inside in the martabaan, has an inch thick layer of oil to protect it.
Some of the traditional ways this pickle is enjoyed in Mithila includes with Khichdi, Choora Dahi (Flattened Rice with Curd), Dal-Chawal, Poha, Paratha, Poori Sabzi, and with most Indian dishes.

Taste is awesome 👌 and it touches our soul,just amazing. It feels like homemade pickle not purchased from market. Please mention that taste and quality in future.
Very authentic gaon-wala-ghar-wala taste!!!
Superb packaging too….
I’m so delighted that finally we can have home-like pickle without having to wait for my annual consignment from my mother or make it myself!!
However, I find all the pickles a bit high on the chilly. Please take this as a constructive feedback and reduce the mirchi….
I have ordered chilli garlic ginger pickle and Mango Pickle Genuine “Mithila” test. Keep up the good job. I am fully satisfied. Thanks
I'm glad you liked our pickles, Jha Ji :)
Thank you so much for the endorsement.
Ghar ki yaad aa gayi.. Amazing quality, many more orders to come definitely.
The aachar was delicious. But it had lost all the oil in transit. You have to improve your packaging, and delivery. Put seal before putting on the lid. Even when the bharua mirchi was delivered there was lot of oil spill. Taste is true Bihari taste.
Great taste loved it
