Hi. Thanks for the lovely recipies!
I have a little doubt. For the Vadu Maanga Pickle, do I add the chillie, methi and mustard to the handful of vadus that I must take out, and then put the lot back into the jar or just make the pickle as you said, a handful at a time?
My maangas have been in the salt solution and sun for two days now. :)
