Asafoetida or Hing for Pickles
Although it is called Hing ka achaar, this aam aur hing ka achar recipe really makes a green or raw mango pickle made with green mangoes that are picked before their stones harden.
That is not to belittle the role of asafoetida in this pickle, for the magical quality it gets would be impossible without hing.
It’s the simplest pickle to make and can be eaten daily with your meals. There are no substitutes for the Mango and the Hing. No other sour fruit or vegetable would do. And the quality of the hing is really important too.
Hing or asafoetida is a hard resinous gum, greyish-white when fresh, darkening with age to yellow, red and eventually brown. It is sold commonly as a fine yellow powder, sometimes crystalline or granulated.
