Raw Mango Thokku

Come summers and everywhere you get to see green raw mangoes. A lot of dishes can be made incorporating them but the favorite for me remains this humble thokku. This is one such fool proof recipe. Sweet, sour and mildly spicy this one goes well with rice, and breakfast items alike. The best pairing being Β curd rice. πŸ™‚

Mango Thokku

Here goes the recipe:

Ingredients:

Β Raw Mangoes: 1-2 medium size grated

Salt as per taste

Gingelly oil/ Sunflower oil: 1-2 tbsp (see notes)

Sunflower oil can also be used in place of gingelly oil but for storage purpose gingelly oil serves best.
