Ever heard of pickle being served in a potli ?….yes this is a typical sindhi pickle….i remember my hubby’s naani making it…but ever since we never went thru so much trouble of tying one serving in one small potli….we just filled it into a jar….but believe me the charm of the potli is really unique.The idea behind  the potlis must have been to  save it from getting spoilt.just remove a single potli..n then no putting bac into the jar!! 

1kg………………………..grated mango
50gms…………………......oil
1tsp………………………..onion seeds(kalonji)
1tsp………………………..saunf
1tsp………………………..peppercorns
2tsp………………………..red chilly pwd
½ tsp………………………hing
3tsp………………………..vinegar
2 big pods…………………garlic
Salt to taste

Peel and grate the mangoes..
Heat oil to a smoking point n cool.
Boil water to a boiling point n cool.
To the grated mango add all the ingredients…Mix well.

Add another 50gms oil n 3 tsp vinegar to the boiled cooled water.
Take small square pieces of muslin cloth…put a spoonful of this mix on it.
Tie this into a tiny bag(potli).


After tieing all the potlis put them in a glass jar n pour the water solution ..so these potlis immerse in them.
Takes about 10 days to get ready. 
wonder y this name ?????
