Preethi, this thokku reminds me of my Amma's. The mango you get here, thokku doesn't come well. Probably i will ask my Mom to send some thokku.

I love mango thokku pickle..we buy it from Priya's Pickles in India..never dared to do it. Nice recipe and looks yummy. BTW I faved your blog in Technorati :)

Sweta said...

Sounds easy-do you have to keep it in the sun for a couple of days(my gran used to keep pickles in the sun)?

kittymatti said...

no Sweta..Since the mango is completely cooked to remove all the moisture, there is no sun drying involved here..

hey rads, thank u so much! That was soooo sweet of u! thnx for the encouragement from day1

Sowmy, Kittymatti was a common email address for my sis n me (basically Im kitty n shez matti..haha) during our school days when comp and internet were new to us... I have retained the name since then for myself!

Thank u all for the lovely comments!

Great post. I especially found it interesting. For this matter, once I discussed with one of my friends, www.geonlineservice.com not only about the content you talked about, but also to how to improve and develop, but no results. So I am deeply moved by what you said today.
