Summary

Large, fleshy mango pieces seasoned with a perfect blend of spices make this pickle a flavor explosion. This will remind you of a homemade achaar that used to sit in the sun in a martabaan on our terraces.

Pickles can make everyday meals taste better! And attached to a jar of pickles is often nostalgia. “Maa ke haath ka“, “daadi jaisa“, or the quintessential “bachpan wala taste hai!”

Packaged pickles although available in a wide range of high-quality options, fail to capture the rustic taste of homemade pickles. We recently reviewed First Bud Organics Homemade Mango Pickle, which was featured on Shark Tank India Season 3. Our review covers parameters like taste, texture, ingredients, and other important information about this homemade pickle.

Our Review Factors

Our review parameters is discussed as follows: 

1. Taste

Taste is the prime factor we assess when reviewing pickles. We are looking at the following points –

  • The overall seasoning: Flavor of saunf, kalonji and more
  • Tang and spice levels
  • Freshness of the pickle

Will this pickle prove to be a delicious accompaniment with your homemade meals? 

2. Texture 

In this segment we are looking at the following key points:

a. The size and cut of the mangoes: In addition to the size and cut of the mangoes, the bite of the mangoes is crucial too. How are the mangoes cut? Large chunks or small bits? Are the mango pieces too mushy? Do they retain a bite?

How we tried it? 

We tasted the achar in two ways : 

  • As is 
  • With a batch of hot parathas
  • With everyday meals like dal-chaawal

Aroma + Appearance 

Appearance-wise this achar has a homestyle touch. The mango pieces are large but have clean cuts. The aroma of mustard oil tingles your nose.

Unlike most of the leading pickle brands that have a lot of oil floating, this comparatively does not seem to be that oily. But it still has oil in it. 

Taste + Texture 

The texture of this mango pickle is remarkable. The mango pieces have a pleasant softness while also retaining a bite to them. The best part is that it is not mushy or hard to bite into.

What we truly liked is the generous quantity of masala or spice blend used. This ensures that every bite results in a burst of flavor. Flavor-wise, we have no complaints. 

Fresh, authentic and with a characteristic Punjabi style touch, this pickle has a harmonious blend of saunf, cumin and fenugreek. The inclusion of mustard on the other hand adds a pungent kick and complements the other spices quite well.
