Avasara Maangai Urugai/ Instant Cut Mango Pickle

Vibha and me were on a shopping spree when I saw the load of delicious Mangoes  and smiled at my daughter.She knew that I would go there straight and resigned to the fact that for sometime her shopping will have to wait. I picked up quite a few of Malgoa variety...and some Alphonso too. Back home, I washed and took one fruit for myself(I like to eat it as a whole fruit, not cut into bits..a little messy but I just love it), But cut one for my daughter,She feels eating a whole mango is messy...I feel she is missing on something, but anyway gave her the cut pieces. As i was enjoying the sweet mango, she made a weird face and said...Mom..this is too sweet!!!I was like...EH?Isn't it supposed to be sweet????Hmmm...She does not like mango to be too sweet...I guess the only way I can give mango to my daughter which she loves is this cut mango pickle:-)
