Mangai Thokku + Garlic Avakkai Pickle
Juicy and sour long raw green mangoes, all natural spices, rock salt, gingelly oil and loads of love, create the ultimate Mangai Thokku or raw mango pickle. Enjoy this tangy, spicy summer pickle with just about anything, even with steamed rice, any time of the day. Perfect with curd rice, rotis, pooris or even plain bread!
Girija Paati's Garlic Avakkai combines strong flavours of sour raw green mango, rustic garlic, pungent mustard, bitter methi and spicy black pepper, among others. The best way to eat this pickle is to mix it with hot rice, along with the oil from the pickle, and roll it into bite-size balls (urundais). Sit in a circle with your family members, and share these urundais around along with scary stories. Make sure you have a bowl of curd or home-made butter milk.
