Mango thokku | manga thokku recipe

Mango thokku or manga thokku is one of my most favorite pickle. A best accompaniment for sambar rice, upmas, parathas and curd rice. My mom makes this very well and i still remember the days when she used to make mango thokku in bulk and store for 4-5 months. I made this thokku and clicked long back but it was lying in the draft for a long time. We are just back from a fantastic and fun filled India trip. Will get back to routine in a  day or two. Let me first finish off posting the recipes lying in my draft and will start with the new one from the next week.
