ABOUT Raw Mango Thokku RECIPE

Raw mango thokku is a popular condiment that accompanies many South Indian foods and also for the rotis. This thokku is slightly sweet and mildly hot. I particularly like them with a bowl of curd rice.

Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. 3 Raw mango

  1. Wash and peel the mangoes. Grate 2 mangoes finely using a carrot grater and 1 mango thinly using the chip slicer.

  7. Mix and stir well. Then add the jaggery to the thokku.
  8. Keep the flame low and allow the thokku to combine well till the oil floats on the top of the thokku. Finally, add the fenugreek powder, mix well and switch off the flame.
  9. Store it in a glass jar. Yummy and tasty mango thokku is ready. This thokku will remain good for 1 month if refrigerated.
