With this completely natural pickle, you get to bite into the whole fruit itself rather than small, chopped pieces of it! This homegrown hog plum, known locally as 'ambazhanga', closely resembles and tastes similar to small, raw mangoes. The pickled raw fruit is a favourite flavour in the sea side town of Calicut in Kerala, where this pickle has been homemade with care. The spices, such as red chillies and turmeric used to pickle this fruit, is not simply store bought in its powdered form. They are cleaned, sun dried and ground at home to ensure that the spices are of premium quality and are not adulterated.
