mangai thokku recipe

Summers and pickles are mixed up combinations without which the whole season will become idle. Predominantly spicy tangy pickles are popular but some sweet pickles are also made with raw mangoes and lemon. I would say this manga thokku recipe as a short stay variation in contrast with other elaborately made pickle ranges. Heard about a mango chuda recipe its a sweet version famous Gujariti preserve thinking of making it sometime. Although its made within few mangai thokku recipe

minutes it does not compromise in taste. Especially this manga thokku is a sweet tangy spicy delight that will very well go with anything. Curd rice, sambar-sadam,rasam-sadam even with rotis,dosas whichever combination you like just enjoy.  Gingelly oil is a must for any pickle and it will keep well for long. I have grated the mangoes with skin itself but if you don’t like peel the skin and grate. You can keep this in fridge for 15 days and use. Here I have already sweet lemon pickle in my blog.

Notes

Adding jaggery is optional.
Always use gingelly oil for making all pickles.
If you don’t like it with skin then peel off the skin then grate.
If the mangoes are not tart enough you can add some lemon juice.
I have used kashmiri chilli for colour but its optional.
