Hi Nadira
Thanks for your lovely comment. Yes you have to add that water(sap) also while you mixing the mango pieces and masala and tadka because that is the juice from mangoes and that gives the taste to the pickle. sorry for the late reply. hope you got it now.

First of all I want to say awesome blog! I had a quick question that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a difficult time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there. I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any suggestions or tips? Thank you!
