Mango Thokku

Am a big fan of mangoes too. I have many raw mango sitting in my refrigerator ( now too !! ) waiting to use in a good way. My garlic pickle is finished and I had to make something for the pickle , while having chitchat with Savi , told her am gonna make thokku with mango. Instantly she asked me to grind the mango instead of grating and assured  it's a big hit everytime anyone makes it. Yep, sure it is.. This is one such pickle where everyone wants to lick the spoon and have it as such ..

Ingredients :

Mango -- 1 no. , Medium sized
Turmeric powder -- a pinch
Dry red chillies -- 4 to 5 nos . (acc to taste)
Jaggery -- 1 to 1 1/2 tbsp Jaggery , powdered ( acc to taste )
Salt -- 1/2 tsp
Fenugreek seeds -- 1/2 tsp

For seasoning :

Oil -- 1/4 cup ( preferably sesame oil )
Mustard seeds -- 1/4 tsp
Hing -- a pinch

Method :

  • Dry roast the fenugreek seeds and grind to a fine powder.
  • Peel the mango and cut into chunks . Grind the mango along with the dry red chillies using very little water and make a paste.
  • Heat a tsp of oil and do the seasoning with mustard seeds and the hing. Dump in the ground mango paste, salt and scald well. Add the turmeric powder and mix well.
  • Keep on stirring the mixture over medium low flame and add oil in between.
  • Stir the mixture continuously until it starts leaving out the oil.
  • Add the fenugreek seeds powder at this stage and scald well. Keep the thokku in the low heat for a minute without disturbing so that it gets infused .
  • Finally add the powdered jaggery . Mix well to combine. Again let it set in the heat for a minute or so before switching off.
  • Transfer the mixture to a container / bottle once warm and njoy with curd rice.

Note :
  • Adding oil is must if u want ur thokku to stay many days
  • Stays good even @ room temperature if u use a clean spoon everytime.
  • U may also refrigerate to stay for months..
  • U may also grate the mango and do the same way.
  • If u feel sesame oil is bitter, add half sesame oil and half cooking oil.
