Maankaai (Raw Mango) Thokku

This is my mother-in-law's preparation.


1 Raw mango
Salt as per taste
4 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
Bit of asafoetida
1 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds

Remove the skin of the mango and grate it.

Heat oil, add mustard seeds,fenugreek seeds and asafoetida to it. Add the grated mango and mix well. Dont add any water to it. Add turmeric, chilli powder and salt and mix well for some time till the raw smell goes off.

Cool and store under refrigeration. A nice side dish for idli,dosa,chapatis and even rice.
