About this recipe: This is a mango pickle recipe that is made in Goa just on the onset of summer when the raw mangoes are in season and stored for those rainy days when you would eat the pickle with kangi (rice water)!

I tried the Mango Miskut, but do not seems to understand why is gas coming out of the pickle. It won't stop, can you please advise why this is happening and how to prevent this from happening in the future remakes of the pickle. Thanks - 19 Nov 2013
