Solution

We can use different methods of food preservation in order to preserve these fruits and vegetables. E.g. Juice and pulp can be extracted from mangoes. One can make products from mango pulp like amba-poli or dried sheets of mango pulp. Raw mangoes, amla, or guava can be preserved by making their squash preparations. Peas can be peeled from pods and then frozen and stored for a long time. Fenugreek can be used for making theplas, muthtyas, and other eatables. Tomatoes can be preserved by making tomato puree, squash, ketchup, or sauce. Onions can be dried or fried and kept for a long time. If any fruits or vegetables are available in plenty in certain seasons, they can be preserved using a suitable method. They can be thus stored for even a year or more.
