Raw Mango season started! Got nice Raw Mangoes from Indian Shop today.. First thing came to my mind is Pickle. Got 2 Kgs of raw mangoes. I made Grated Mango Thokku and Chopped Mango pickle. My husband's favourite is Chopped Mango Pickle. But my favorite is Thokku. I learnt these pickles from my MIL, she is indeed a very good chef! For any pickle we should be generous in spice and salt and for any sweet we should be generous in adding sugar / jaggery. This is one of the secret advice given by my MIL. Keeping that in mind, I have made this spicy and mouth-watering Mangai Thokku (grated Raw Mango Pickle). Mango thokku is a great accompaniment for curd rice and even for rotis. My husband came home for lunch and he enjoyed this yummy Mangai Thokku with curd rice a lot! Lets learn how to make this Mangai Thokku now..

Method:

  1. Wash, peel and grate the mango and set it aside. Heat 1 tablespoon of gingelly oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds and hing. 

  2. When the mustard seeds starts to sputter, add the grated mango and mix well. Add turmeric powder and salt and give it a good mix. 

  3. Keep the flame low and allow the grated mangoes to cook nicely. Generally in 3-4 minutes, the mango will be tender and soft. Now its time to add the red chilli powder. Add red chilli powder to the pan and mix well. Add 2 tablespoon of oil to the pan and stir well. Adjust the salt if needed.

  4. Keep the flame low and allow the thokku to combine well till the oil oozes out of the thokku. Finally add fenugreek powder, mix well and Switch off the flame. Take the thokku in a air-tight container and once it comes to the room temperature, heat 1 tablespoon of oil and add it to the top of the thokku and close the container with a lid and refrigerate to have a long life. The oil preserves this thokku. While serving, do not use the top layer oil. Also use dry spoon while serving. Also once a day stir the thokku well and refrigerate again.

  5. Yummy and spicy Mangai Thokku is now ready to serve!
