The preparation of this Jaggery Magaya pickle is quite different from any other mango pickles as the pickle is prepared with dried mango pieces. Maagaya is again a family favorite after avakaya. The taste, texture of this pickle when mixed with hot rice and ghee is just wonderful. We also prepare magaya pacchadi (chutney) with this jaggery magaya pickle which can be eaten with idli/dosa.
The sweeter version of the Magay, the necessary amounts of pakkam, thick syrup of jaggery is added to the oota of the magay. This with the addition of the Jandhyala seasoning makes the pieces of magay more succulent.
