Mango grated – 2 cups heaped (you can use any sour variety)
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Chilli powder -1/4 cup( I used homemade chilli powder which it not very hot – use less if using store bought powder)
Salt -2 1/4 tbsp or as required
Mustard seeds – 1 tsp
Asafoetida/Hing -1/4 tsp
Fenugreek powder/ vendhayam (dry roasted and powdered) – 1/2 tsp
Sesame seed oil/ gingerly oil -1/4 cup + 2 tbsp
Wash mangoes well and wipe it dry. Peel the skin and grate the mangoes using a grater.
Dry roast fenugreek seeds in a pan (do not brown it) and powder it. Keep it aside.
Heat oil in a kadai , add mustard seeds and hing, when mustard splutters, add the grated mango and turmeric powder and saute nicely for a few minutes. (keep the flames low)
Then only you should add chilli powder and salt.
After adding chilli powder and salt, saute nicely till oil separates.Keep it in low flame otherwise it will get burnt.
Then add fenugreek powder, mix well and switch it off. Leave it to cool.
Store it in a dry container and refrigerate it. It can be used as a condiment for curd rice, paratha, bread, sandwich, idli etc. It will last a month though in my house, it will be over within a week.
Do not forget to check out varieties of Pickle Recipes in my site.
It is preferable to use sesame seed oil for making pickles.
I use only powdered rock salt and homemade chilli powder for all my pickles as it is free of additives
Use dry spoon and take only needed quantity from the refrigerator.
Store it in a clean and dry bottle or container.

Very delicious summer treat!
thokku looks superb…thanks for the useful tips

My granny used to make this. She used to pickle the mangos and make mango tokku by grating mango pulp which is adearing to seed, so that nothing goes waste. Can I use thotapuri mango for this tokku?

Love mango tokku ..yummy
Delicious maanga thokku… yumm and finger licking good 🙂
nice presentation padhu. i made recently managi thoku. but whole methi seeds added not the powder. as you said nallennai is always better but my family members don't like it. even for adai i love it.
varieties, chettu mangai, vadu mangai, kanni mangai, cut mangoes mixed with salt and dried. (ada mangai) later u can make pickle out of it, or vathakuzhampu etc.

We add a little jaggery to it and the taste is ultimate
I tried the same with with mango slightly ripened ( bit sweet and sour) in pulp form ( not grated, grinded in a mixer) and with Jaggery, little 1/4 tea spoon of sambar powder too… It tastes divine with chappati, dosa..
Great simple. I added a little jaggery and tasted divine…thx
Very delicious you are a star…tks padhu…
Done and it tastes amazing. Tried it with previously salted baby mangoes coarsely blend . Had to stir for a longer time time to get rid of the water. Did I miss the hing? Can't find Wher to to add it!

Tried above recipe and it came out yummy taste . Thanks for sharing.
Hi, what do I do if I want the pickle to last for say 6 months or so? I got a lot of mangoes this season from a friend and I don't want them to go waste 🙂 TIA
Thokku will not last for 6 months. Maybe a month or two in the refrigerator. You can try various Mango Recipes.
My wife tried this today and it was awesome. We got d same look alike receipe..Thanks a lot padhu sankar!!! Is ter an option to upload image
Happy to know. You can send the picture to Padhuskitchen facebook page. I will publish it there.
Hai padhu ism priys.i have tried receipes as per Ur method.it all came iuf very well and it's easy to prepare .thanks.
oil 1/4 cup+2 tbsp when to use is not mentioned. I used the 2 tbsp for hing and mustard seed to splutter . then added the grated mango, turmeric. now when do I use the 1/4 cup of oil?
I have written “Heat oil” in the first sentence under method – which means all the oil 1/4 cup +2 tbsp (that is the measurement of the quantity of oil, I have used)
Wow delicious padhu always loved your recipies
