Mango Ginger Thokku recipe | Maa inji thokku

Mango ginger thokku recipe | Maa inji is a seasonal root vegetable,which is generally used to make pickle. I have already posted a very simple version of no cook maa inji pickle. During my childhood days i never liked this mango ginger, but some how when i started making this after marriage, i started liking the pickle slowly. Though we make the simple version of the maa inji pickle, never tried the thokku version. I got a bunch of maa inji from little India market last week. I some how vaguely remember that my friend makes this thokku and pinged her for the recipe. She told me that it is similar to the mango thokku and gave me few tips too. Try this at home and let me know how you liked it.

Notes:
  1. If you want add venthaya podi, add 2 pinches of  roasted fenugreek powder.
  2. Since it is not sour, add red chili powder accordingly.
  3. Some people add little tamarind water to the maa inji pickle after adding the grated mango. But i didn't prefer that and so didn't add in my maa inji thokku.
