Slowly whisk in ⅓ cup extra virgin olive oil and then add ¼ tsp black pepper, 1 tsp chopped chilli, 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro. Store in the fridge.
Mango Chhunda: This Gujarati pickle is a great accompaniment with theplas, rotis and pooris. Mix 1 1/3 cups of grated raw mango with 1 cup of unrefined cane sugar (you can use jaggery as well) in a saucepan and place it over a low flame. Allow the mixture to cook and boil till it thickens to a two-strand consistency – the mixture should look translucent. Next, stir in ½ tsp cumin powder and ½ tsp chilli powder. Cool and store in an airtight jar. Store in a cool, dry place.
