Aam aur chane ka achar – Marwari style mango pickle
Aam aur Chane ka achar -Since it’s summer time – everybody is busy making pickles (unless you are fond of buying stale off the shelf pickles made with adulterated oil and the cheapest available ingredients).
Making pickles sounds like a very difficult or tiresome task, but the truth is very different. Making pickles doesn’t take any more effort than making a salad or a raita – and the resulting satisfaction of eating a pickle made from high quality ingredients makes it a very guilt free affair. As it’s summer season, and the hot favorite is obviously raw mango (so many recipes and so many favourite versions to try).
So now I am also sharing my favorite mango and chick pea pickle, which is from Marwar region of Rajasthan.
Rajasthani cuisine uses a lot of chickpeas and besan in it’s recipes. In true Rajasthani tradition – this pickle also uses chickpeas in it. Grated mango and chickpeas are mixed with whole and powdered spices to make this tongue tickling pickle – aam aur chane ka achar.

Hi Neha ,you can surely make this pickle only with kabuli chana -kabuli chane ka achar 🙂
Neha Gupta says
very tempting recipe. one query ,since i am not getting raw mango can i make this recipie by only using kabuli chana, and consequently soak the chanas in water. is that possible?
@Paulinha-mustard oil is smoked to get rid of its strong smell,but if you like the smell then no need to smoke it,yellow mustard oil is milder in smell and taste as compared to dark colour mustard oil,both are good for pickling ,but personally I prefer to use dark mustard oil.
this looks amazing! I really want to try making it, my question is, do i really need to smoke the mustard oil? Or can I just mix it withiout smoking? Should I buy the light color or dark color mustard oil? Anyone know the difference between them? Thank you ladies 🙂
How many grams is ONE CUP according to you in this Recipe ? Secondly, how many grams Red Chillies are to be taken ?
Hi Rewa – One Cup is 250ml (the regular measuring cup) – translating in grams is difficult, as different ingredients have different densities. The red chilli powder is two tablespoons.
It looks really amazing!! I have to try it!! Thanks for sharing 🙂
Generally they add the black channa to pickle. Is this kabuli channa? Nevertheless, looks great!
Salivating here, wat an irresistible pickle.
Looks so good, never tried this combo, mangoes and chana..
