Methia derives it name from methi kuria (crushed fenugreek seeds). This is a spicy pickle which is incredibly easy to make. Raw mangoes dressed with salt and turmeric powder are then combined with equal quantities of chilli powder, split fenugreek seeds, mustard oil and sea salt. If you wish, you can use drained baby mangoes in brine, in which case, you should reduce the quantity of salt in this recipe. Methia keri is an ideal accompaniment for almost all meals and is also prepared in a jiffy.
