Fresh mango pickle/மாங்கா தொக்கு

Mango is one veggie which has fiber ,vitamin A,Potassium and lots of mineral in it .Include mango in your diet often.This is family favourite of ours , my mom used to do it and we used to gobble it up. This pickle can be an accompaniment for curd rice or sambhar rice as well as for dosas. The freshness of mango ,little jaggery, chili powder will blow your taste buds away. There are no preservatives and its very fresh so you can give it to kids.

If you are looking for sidedish with mango try Mangodal curry

Preparation time:5-10 min(grating the mango)
