Manga Thokku

A pickle which has all the flavors spicy, sourness, a little sweet –manga thokku. Prepare the thokku when raw mangoes are still in the market. You can use any type of raw mango which has a sour taste .

This is my 201’st recipe. When I started the blog 3 years back I had never dreamt that I could prepare and publish all these recipes. Thank you all for the support and I hope to continue this journey.😊


Raw Mango — 1 kg

Spicy red chili powder — 3 tbsp

Jaggery —- 1 1/2 tbsp

Salt —- 1 tbsp

Turmeric powder — 1/2 tsp

Mustard seeds — 1 tsp

Asafetida — 1/2 tsp

Fenugreek powder 1 tsp

Sesame oil —7-8 tbsp.


Buy mango that are firm and that you think will be sour in taste( smell the mango to find if it’s sour). Wash, remove the skin and grate the mango. Heat oil in a heavy deep pan. Add the mustard seeds. Once the seeds crackle, add the turmeric powder and asafetida. Give it a stir and added the grated mango and chili powder. Stir the mango well. Close and cook for two minutes in low heat. Now add salt and jaggery. Mix well, cover and cook in low heat for 7-8 minutes and keep stirring in between. Put off the heat once you see the oil oozing out. Add the fenugreek powder and mix it well. Cover and allow the thokku to cool down. Once the thokku is cooled, store it in an airtight bottle. Enjoy the Maanga Thokku.
