Mango thokku recipe

Mango thokku is a very simple yet finger licking and delicious side dish for curd rice. I learnt this recipe from my MIL. Before marriage, I had tasted Andhra mango thokku recipe from my friends. But after marriage, when I saw my MIL making homemade mangai thokku very easily and quickly with less oil, I was amazed. But its of Tamil nadu style. Its a great side dish for curd rice and even chapathi too. This is one of the must try Mango recipes in this season. 

Roasted and powdered methi seeds and Asafetida/Hing are the star ingredients for any pickle recipe. So don’t skip it. Try this authentic Tamil nadu style mango thokku recipe and relish it with curd rice. I have also uploaded a full video recipe below. Please check it. Lets see how to make this delicious Raw Mango thokku recipe.

Cuisine: Indian
Category: Pickle
Serves: 1 cup
Prep time: 10 Minutes
Cook time: 15 Minutes
Total time: 25 Minutes

1 cup - 200ml
  • Raw mango – 1/2 kg ( I used 1 big sized mango of 1/2 kg) OR Grated raw mango - 2.5 cups
  • Red chilli powder - 2.5 - 3 tsp
  • Methi seeds – 1 tsp ( dry roast & grind to a powder)
  • Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp
  • Hing / Asafetida – 1/2 tsp
  • Jaggery – Big gooseberry size (adjust based on tanginess of mango)
  • Salt – As needed
To temper
  • Sesame / Gingely oil – 4 tbsp
  • Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
  • Wash the raw mango. No need to peel the skin. Grate the mango using a grater. Set aside.

  • Dry roast the methi seeds in a kadai till it turns golden brown and powder it nicely.
  • In a wide mouthed kadai,add 3 tbsp of sesame oil. Put the grated mango & required salt to it. Saute well till it becomes soft. Cover and cook the mangoes for sometime in very low flame.

  • After the mango is cooked well,add the turmeric powder, red chilli powder, hing/Asafetida and jaggery. Mix well and saute for sometime till raw smell goes off. As you mix, thokku will start to leave the sides of kadai.
  • Lastly add the roasted methi seeds powder, mix it and switch off the flame.
  • Temper with mustard seeds using a tbsp of sesame oil. Once the thokku cools down, store it in an air tight container. Refrigerate and preserve for months.
