Manga thokku | Raw Mango thokku

For this week blogging marathon, i chose the theme "Seasonal Veggies" . Being in india, during summer, what else would be the seasonal veggie , other than Mango. So you can see three different mango recipes for the coming days.

I saw this recipe in geetradhu  channel around 1 year back .From that day onwards, regularly  i make this thokku whenever i have mango in stock. I loved their youtube channel, just because of  their casual talk in between apart from their great recipes.


Raw Mango - 1 (medium size)
Red chili powder - 1 1/2 tsp
Turmeric - 1/4 tsp
Jaggery - 1 tsp approx
Salt - to taste (1/2 tsp approx)
Fenugreek seed - 1/4 tsp

To Temper
Gingelly/Sesame oil  - 2 tbsp
Mustard - 1/4 tsp


Peel the mango & grate it . It yields 1 cup approximately.First in a small pan, add the fenugreek seed & dry roast it well & powder it.

Heat the heavy bottom pan, temper the ingredients listed under "To Temper" . Add the grated mango, saute it well.

Once it started to shrink, add the spices(turmeric& chili powder) & salt.Mix it well. Let it cook till the oil separates.

Then add the jaggery & mix well until it all melts. Switch off the flame & then add the fenugreek powder and give a quick stir.

That's it, tasty & finger licking manga thooku is ready. Serve it with curd rice.
