GYO- Burong Mangga

A week before the mangoes were due for harvest, a branch broke off
from the main trunk.

My uncle says it was because of the weight of the fruits.

So here we are with so many green mangoes.

A recipe that calls for green mangoes is Burong Mangga (Pickled Mangoes).

The usual way to do it is to cut the green mangoes into 1 centimeter
thick strips. Discard seeds. Place mangoes in small clean glass jars.
Add about 1 tsp salt and water barely to cover well the mangoes.
This will be ready to serve in 3-4 days.

Here is another recipe shared by chef Jackie Ang Po from Yummy
(April 2009), perfect timing with our green mangoes!

you will need:
3 pieces green mangoes
4 cups water

for the syrup:
2 cups water
1 cup sugar
2 tsp salt

Peel and cut green mangoes into strips. Discard seeds. Boil 4 cups
water and let cool completely. Soak sliced mangoes in the cooled
water overnight.

To make the syrup: Fill pan with water. Add in sugar and salt.
Boil and let cool completely.

Drain soaked mango strips. Place in airtight container. Pour syrup
over the mangoes and cover. Refrigerate 2-3 days.

This is usually served as a side dish. Enjoy!

It's a good thing that you were prepared to make something with all those green mangos! I would have been all stressed out about what to do with them!

I'm glad no one got hurt.

I like the simplicity of your recipe. Here people always add shoyu to their pickled mango and, to me anyway, it hides the mango taste too much.

Nice blog :)

I absolutely love green mangoes escpecially those unripe ones. When I was young, mom used to slice those unripe green mangoes and drizzle them with soya sauce for a mean treat. I still feel nostalgic about that childhood nostalgic treat.

Your recipe looks good too :)
