Uppumanga is what we call in malayalam, where 'Uppu' means saltand 'Manga' means mangoes. Brining is a process of preserving seasonal fruits or vegetables.

RECIPE NOTES
There is no correct measurement for this preparation.
Only make sure the water should be salty, which acts as a preservative. But not too salty otherwise the mangoes will become hard.
If in case you find any fungus, use dry spoon to make it aside and carefully take out required mangoes. You can either let the fungus remain in it without disturbing or throw it. It won't effect the mangoes in any way.
