The process of making Gratchar Mango Atchar
Special care is taken when selecting the best green mangoes from September to December.
Gratchar Mango Atchar is aimed at bringing the true flavours of this mouthwatering delicacy to the people of South Africa. It is a well-known fact that produce is pickled in many countries to increase it’s shelf life. However, we just don’t pickle the mangoes. We combine them with quality condiments to bring you the right combinations of oils, spices, fruits and vegetables. The Gratchar Mango Atchar is prepared with the finest green mangoes. No ripe or yellow mango is used so that we can get the flavours right and consistent with each jar/packaging.
After careful selection, the green mangoes are pre-washed “sterilized with food grade “chlorine” “cut, and then mixed with spices, and allowed to ferment for a pre-determined period of time to preserve their quality. The process of fermentation of the mangoes takes about 8 weeks and the mangoes are ready to be mixed with other condiments to prepare a delicious jar of Gratchar mango atchar. The recipe comes full circle as the mangoes are mixed with freshly cut chilies. The atchar is then packed in either plastic liners and/or plastic buckets or boxed. The entire process is completed with utmost care to ensure quality and hygiene. A delicious atchar is the rich combination of oils, spices, and the carefully selected mangoes. Apart from the green mangoes, other ingredients are also added after ensuring their quality and freshness.
