Finally today I pulled myself out to blog this mango pickle which was a long pending one and which I made during last mango season πŸ˜› Yes you heard it right, this was made and photographed last year. But off course I did make a batch of it this year. How can I miss to make it when the market is flooded with mangoes.

Mango Thokku is a South Indian style mango pickle recipe made with freshly grated raw mango and few simple basic spice ingredients with no added preservatives and artificial food colour. The spice ingredients used are readily available in our pantry.

This mango thokku is one of my favourite pickle. Apart from having with meals I love to have it just like that alone. It is finger licking delicious and mouthwatering pickle.
Apart from pickles there are also different varieties of chutneys and drinks made of raw mango. I love the aam panna which is a very good for summer. You can have a look at my version of gingery aam panna recipe.

Mango Thokku is quick and easy to make. It doesn’t require much of your time to prepare it and is ready within 30 mins. It is spicy, flavourful and lipsmacking.

It is a great accompaniment for curd rice, dal sambar rice, rotis etc. So do try this easy and mouthwatering mango pickle recipe before the mango season ends and do share your thoughts about the recipe with me.
