Raw Mango in Salt

We have “Amli” and “uman” that is raw mango preserved in brine and fish curry with rice at Kaki’s place.
Before I made these beauties I rang her up to confirm the method.
 Her Daughter-in-Law Sharayu(she is my friend too)  brought the stones and guided me as to arrange the mangoes in salt. Thanks Sharayu you are great.
Since I did not have a big enough plastic tub to accommodate these raw mangoes and the stones to weigh them down  I put them in the big strong plastic bag. 

 8 days under the rock and these are ready.Then transferred them to the bottle.. For 30 mangoes I used a bit more than 1/2 kg of coarse salt.
Serve with rice, steaming hot,daal, pickle and papad tastes as good!!

    Wow- these are to die for pickles! we call these vadu mangais and make it much the same way as you did — but I am curious about those long stringy green things also floating atop in the bag… what are they??

    @Nisa – I used about 1 1/2 cups (standard measures)more than half kg.The stone weighs down the mangoes and the salt enters the mango also. In the past I have tried making these without the stones and the mangoes had to be binned.@Priya: Those green strings are green chillies. i should have used the local fiery ones for better taste.But πŸ™‚ did not used the ones at home.
