  3. Slice the raw mango from all the sides and leave the seed aside.
  4. Cut the slices into small cubes and keep aside.
  5. Add jaggery into the chopped raw mango.
  6. Now add the chilli powder on top of the raw mango and jaggery mixture. Don’t mix it yet.
  7. For tempering, heat oil in a tadka pan
  8. Once the oil is hot, add mustard seeds and let them splutter.
  9. Add turmeric and asafoetida to the oil and immediately switch off the gas flame. Immediately pour this tempering on the red chilli powder (which we had added to raw mango and jaggery mixture) and mix well.
  10. Add salt just before serving because the achar will start to leave water once the salt is added. Mix well once you add the salt.
