Mango Sweet Pachadi | Mango Thokku | Mango Pachadi

Mango Sweet Pachadi/Thokku, a sweet,sour & spciy thokku made from the raw mangoes. When i was kid, i was so crazy about this mango pachadi and i kept on insisting Amma to make this whenever i saw raw mangoes in the kitchen. It tastes best with curd rice, but i like to have as it is just like jam 😄.Now i thought that it's kind of like jam,you can spread this on chapathi,roti or even on dosa and have it as rolls,it would be delicious for sure.
To get delicious thokku, you should balance the sourness from the raw mango, so depends on the sourness of the mango, you may need more or less of red chili powder and jaggery. The mangoes that i have used have mild sourness, if your mangoes have more sourness, increase the red chili powder than the quantity mentioned here or vice versa.So what you're waiting for?Try this delicious thokku when mangoes are in season.
