Molaga Thokku recipe | Green chili pickle

Pacha milagaai thokku | green chili pickle is an easy thokku made with green chili and this is an ultimate combo for curd rice and dosa. My grandma is a great fan of this thokku and always make this in bulk and keep . But consuming this daily is not so good for health as it generates heat in the body. Though my mom tell her, not to eat this often, she never listens. When i started making this molaga thokku today, and when the aroma of the thokku started coming, it brought back all the memories of my childhood days. It has been a long time since i  was planning to post this recipe in jeyashri's kitchen. Last week i picked up nice fresh green chilies from the market and finally made it today. The tamarind and  jaggery balance the spiciness of the thokku.
