Mango thokku is a easy thokku prepared with raw mango. Raw mango pickle stays good for weeks.
Manga urugai is one of my favorite pickles. When I was in India every summer Amma prepared a variety of pickle and keep it in a fridge . I use one or two during every meal. After coming to US Initially I just make Pulikachal and Tomato thokku.
Other pickles I buy from the stores. This time I visited India during summer so get to see the way how Amma prepared pickles.Seeing the way how easy mango thokku is I wanted to note down the recipe and try it.
Decided to do it homemade from now on. Infact after seeing the way my Amma prepared thokku, I regertted why I opted to buy instead of doing this quick and simple pickle.
I finished all the pickles she prepared in no time. My neighbour aunty gave some more raw mango from her garden. I asked Amma to prepare Mango thokku and Mango Urugai and took some pictures from my phone 🙂 Here is the recipe for easy homemade thokku. Urugai recipe coming soon.
