We take Alafaya and mix it with hot steaming rice and ghee. When we were young, one mid-summer weekend would be reserved for making assorted mango-based pickle.
Father would set off early in the morning to the wholesale market to get the best of mangoes. Finally, wipe each piece with a soft, dry cotton cloth without damaging it.
We make the Ava pod or Mustard powder, though you could buy it ready made as well. The idea of making Ava Pod just before mixing the Avatar is that it retains the fresh taste and smell.
We also use unrefined, cold-pressed Sesame or Til oil because that is what gives the richest taste. It is just my attempt to pass on all the knowledge I inherited from my Mom and Grandmother.
Juicy mangoes would mean the pickle will spoil quickly. Chopping the mangoes First it needs a heavy-duty chopper than can cut through the seed.
We normally wash and sundry the ceramic jars a couple of days in advance. Typically, we keep the jar (Bahrain) under bright sunlight for 8-10 hours.
I use steel vessels and spatulas to make avatar and so warm them slightly on open flame to remove any residual moisture and then let them cool completely. Storing the Alafaya The way we store this pickle is to close the lid of the jar tightly and then wrap a clean, dry cotton cloth around the mouth of the jar.
If you are using freshly bought oil from a can or a packet, then you can skip this step. Heating and cooling the oil ensures that the moisture content in it evaporates.
Spread the mango pieces on a dry cloth or paper for about 15 minutes to air-dry. Making the Alafaya | Avatar In a large and absolutely dry vessel, mix the mustard powder, chili powder, salt, fenugreek seeds, and Bengal gram/garlic cloves.
With an absolutely dry spatula, mix well till all the mango pieces are covered with the masala and the oil. Put the Avatar into the jar and pour the remaining oil onto the pickle.
