Nature’s Pride Punjabi Mango Pickle In Oil Review
India is a very dynamic country. Here, by dynamic I mean different religions, different cultures, different kinds of clothing, language and food. When we talk about food, one thing you will find in every state of India accompanying your meal – Pickle. Indian people especially women are very fond of pickles and during winters they prepare different kind of pickles at home. Being from Punjabi Brahmin family, I have grown up eating different types of pickles, whether it is of mango, lemon, chilly, carrot, mixed and so many others also, but my favourite was and still is Mango pickle. My mother used to bring so many raw mangoes for pickle. In winters she used to sit in sunshine and cut those into small pieces, then mix it with all the spices and put lots of mustard oil and let it remain in sun for few days for it to get ready naturally.
But now as time has changed and with busy lives and also availability of readymade pickles in the market, pickle making at home has decreased. But you can easily judge the difference in the taste of pickle from market and homemade pickles. When I went for my grocery shopping, I saw this Nature’s Pride Punjabi Mango pickle in oil at the shop and decided to give it a try.
Usually I buy grocery from the same shop, so earlier have never seen this brand called Nature’s Pride. But its packing and mentioning of “Punjabi mango pickle in oil” somehow caught my attention to go for it. The brand is manufactured in India by Nature Agro Foodsunder license from NPPL and marketed by Nature Proteins Pvt Ltd. It is made differently following the traditional methods and age old recipes using the ingredients in the natural form.
My Experience with Nature’s Pride Punjabi Mango Pickle
The mangoes used in the pickle are unpeeled and the pickle is really prepared in the mustard oil (which you can judge from the strong smell of it as soon as you open the cap of the jar).
The taste and aroma actually reminded me of the preparation of the pickle at my home. It is neither too salty nor too spicy, overall a great pickle to have it with paranthas, daal chawal and roti sabzi.
