How is Spicy Mango Pickle made?
Every little element that has gone into replicating our heirloom recipes has been carefully considered and added. The mixture is a unique blend of sweet and spicy, with every component playing a huge role in achieving a natural balance. And each ingredient comes with its own set of flavours and benefits. Here is what goes into making this delicious, fan-favourite pickle:
A delicious summertime treat! No matter how high the temperature may be, it doesn’t feel like summer until the arrival of the first batch of ripe, vibrant mangoes. This fruit doesn’t only taste amazing, it has health benefits that no other ingredient can offer! Firstly, it is loaded with Vitamin K which prevents blood clotting as well as Vitamin C which strengthens the immune system. For the digestive system, it helps ease constipation since it is packed with dietary fiber. Lastly, it consists of a compound known as mangiferin which reduces inflammation of the heart and lowers blood pressure, thereby extremely beneficial for promoting cardiovascular health
As Indians, we are always craving a bit of fiery, red, hot spice – and the best, most nutritional way to achieve that is through red chillies. These chillies enhance the flavours of your dish without compromising on any health benefits. Since it accelerates fat burning and reduces appetite, it is a great diet balancer. Since this ingredient helps increase the secretion of digestive juices, it ensures good digestive health by preventing constipation, gas, and bloating. If you are down with a cough or cold, be sure to add some of this chilli to your meals – not only does it clear nasal congestion it also helps widen the bronchial tubes that help you breathe better.
This oil is commonly found in our kitchens since it is used to sauté and stir-fry vegetables. There is a reason why this oil is recommended over the other cooking oils in the market today. Not only does it ensure smooth functioning of the digestive system, it also supports heart health since it is known to reduce high blood pressure. Mustard oil is also great for skin and hair health: it is often used to clear acne and to attain silky smooth hair.
It is one of the richest sources of iron and magnesium. This ingredient is highly recommended to those who suffer from anaemia and other iron-related ailments. Fenugreek also offer various other health benefits: it improves stamina, boosts digestive health, and helps in managing diabetes
