The word Aavakaaya is a combination of mustard seed powder (aava) and mango pieces (kaaya). As the name suggests, choicest raw mangoes are cut into chunks (with the inner shell left intact) which are then steeped in a special mixture of spices and fresh groundnut oil and pickled to perfection. This pickle is freshly made-to-order, just the way you would like it; and it is as nature intended it to be - all natural, with absolutely no artificial preservatives. Savour the timeless flavour of authentic Aavakaaya!!!
