Instant Mango Pickle

This is common dish during mango season at my mother in law house. They have Mango tree at their back yard very nice for this kind of pickle or sambar. Now writing about it made me craving for it. For the past 4 years somehow I am getting it during season.. Not sure this year whether we will get it... It is called maanga oorgai in tamil. It takes hardly ten minutes to prepare this pickle. In Singapore we get mango every time. It is no close to my MIL house Mango but something is better than nothing..This Mango is not bad

Mustard seeds - half teaspoon
Red chilli powder - half teaspoon
Urad Dhal - 2 teaspoon
