Jeerige Midi Pickle
Organic Express Jeerige Midi Pickle is an absolute delight for food lovers. This tangy and spicy pickle has a distinct aroma and flavour as it is made with small, tender mangoes. The small, tender mangoes used for pickling are also called “midi” or “midiyanga” in Kannada. This unique pickle variety originates from the Malenadu region of Karnataka. This pickle gets its name due to its unique taste. The raw tender mangoes taste like jeera, jeerige or cumin seeds. This distinctive taste and aroma of the mangoes have given the pickle its name.
From the Wilderness of the Western Ghats:
The jeera midis are usually grown in the wild rain forest areas of the Western Ghats. The tropical climate and the rich soil give these mangoes a very unique taste and texture. The raw mangoes are handpicked at the right time to complement the unique texture of the midi pickle. Due to the distinctive taste of this home made pickle, it has been a part of Malenadu households for a very long time. It is considered a popular condiment in South Indian cuisine and is usually served with rice, curries, and other main courses.
Making of Organic Express Jeerige Midi Pickle:
The suitable midis are handpicked to give the pickle a unique taste and texture. The mangoes are then washed, dried, and mixed with rock salt, where they are preserved for 40–60 days. Then well-preserved mangoes are cleaned and mixed well with the spice blend. This unique spice blend is made using mustard seeds, asafoetida, red chilli powder, and turmeric powder. This mixture of mangoes and spices is then layered in a clean, dry ceramic jar and covered with an airtight lid. The home made pickle is then preserved for another 40–60 days. Over time, the mangoes absorb the spicy and tangy flavours of the pickle, and the pickle becomes more flavorful with age.
