Maavinakayi Bisi Uppinakayi, Karnataka special instant raw mango pickle

Maavinakayi Bisi Uppinakayi is Karnataka instant raw mango pickle. Bisi uppinayi is Karnataka instant pickle which is sweet, spicy and sour. It is very aromatic and easy to prepare. Flavours are from mustard and Methi seeds powder, sour from raw mango and sweet from jaggery. We can also prepare tomato bisi uppinakayi too. Bisi Uppinakayi and  Kosambari are my favorites from my childhood and that too the one which served in Mangaraya and Ram devaru temples @Adoni 🙏🙏. 

 The taste of chutney depends on the spices we add. And amount of spices we add depend on the type of raw mango  we use and on its sour. I mentioned the spices quantity depending on the sourness of mango which I used. It's been long time I did not prepared this, my cousin Archana Priyadarshini guided me to prepare this chutney perfectly 😍. My hubby always like to have this chutney with curd rice but I always love it with hot steamed rice🤗. So decided your taste 😍.
