Mango Thokku

Cooking time : 20 mins
Mango Thokku is most people favourite. My Grandma used to prepare this so often and store it in a container for months. This is my all time favourite with Curd Rice / Milk Rice. Preparing Pickles in home is very easy and it don't contain any preservatives and much oil. This is a very simple and easy to make homemade pickle. Just give a try.

Raw Mangoes            - 2
Turmeric Powder       - 1/4 tsp
Red Chilli Powder      - 3 tbsp
Mustard Seeds           - 1 tbsp
Asafoetida                  - 1/2 tsp
Salt                             - To Taste

To Roast and Grind:
Mustard  Seeds           - 1 tbsp                
Fenugreek Seeds         - 1/2 tbsp



STEPS:

  1. Wash the Raw Mangoes well, dry and grate.
  2. Dry Roast the ingredients mentioned in "To Roast and Grind" Section and allow it to cool and grind it to a fine powder.
