For preparing dry mango pickle
First, keep the raw mango soaked in water for ten to twelve hours.
Now take out the mango from the water and wash it well and dry the mango water or clean it well.
Then cut and remove the stem of mango. Now cut mangoes into long chunks.
Marination of the mango chunks
Now add turmeric powder and salt to these mango chunks and keep them in a clean and dry glass container or ceramic pot for marination.
Toss it daily, or run the mango chunks once every day with a clean and dried spoon. So that the mango chunks get marinated uniformly.
In the seven to eight days, as salt slowly dissolves. You will see the juice coming out from mango pieces and the mangoes will become soft and the sour water will get separated from these mango chunks.
Now remove the mango chunks but keep the sour water in the same container, we will use this water later in this recipe (drying time will be in days if you want to dry it with juice).
Transfer these chunks of mango in a plate and put it under the sun throughout the day. These mango chunks will dry up under the sun and will shrink a little and will turn darker.
Preparing spice mix for mango pickle
To prepare the masala for mango pickle. Cleanse the fennel seeds, carom seeds, fenugreek seeds, and yellow mustard seeds.
Now put these spices in a grinder jar and grind them into a coarse powder.
Further add red chili powder, turmeric powder and salt to the grind spice powder and mix well.
