Mango Pickle / Mango Thokku

In the hot summer, all of us definitely like to eat curd rice with pickle. Though many of us think only andhra people crazy about pickle but I had seen many tamilians also fond of pickle..

In my house we have six mango trees.. During Mango season, my mom used to prepare pickles and she give to many of friends and relatives. In the last 2 months I bought Mango pickles in the shop and I was disappointed that the pickles because that wasn’t that good. Last week, I saw fresh mangoes in the indian super market and I decided to prepare pickle. Preparing pickles aren’t tough task and I realised that making our own pickles gives lot of satisfaction. Simply because we are keeping that for a long time :)  The quality of the mangoes and oil plays key role in the taste of pickles...
