Grind the red chilies and keep it aside.

Transfer the chopped mangoes to a heatproof bowl.  Add the mustard powder and salt and mix and keep it aside.

Prepare the seasoning:  To a pan on medium heat with the sesame oil add the mustard seeds and wait for it to pop.
When the mustard seeds pop, turn the heat off and add the turmeric powder, the ground chillies, methi powder and asafoetida mix and let it cook on the heat of the oil and add it to the chopped mangoes, mix and bottle.

Note:  If you want to add less oil you can first add 1/2 cup oil, after a couple of days add the other 1/4 if needed.  Before adding the additional oil make sure you heat the oil to smoking, let it cool and add it after that.
