Menthikaya has the unique honor of being the only ooragaya in the mango family that cools you down. This pickle is often eaten as a coolant...a spicy, sour-sweet coolant.
This time the Nuziveedu mangoes are met with the freshness of fenugreek. Made with methi (fenugreek) powder instead of ava powder, the Jandhyala Menthikaya has a medley of tastes- the minty fresh feel mixed with, the spiciness and sourness of mango Dokhu and the ground seasoning of our spices, which make sure the dish is a buffet of tastes.
This deep maroon colored ooragaya of ours can be eaten with Dibba Roti and fresh cream as well as a generous adding of ghee.
