Mango Chutney ( Mango thokku)

Mango thokku or chutney can be done in n number of ways.I had this dish when I was studying 8 th std in St Mary's Chengalpet.We used to go to a village near chengalpet , to our friend's house. They are from Andhra and has a lot of mango trees around their house.Their Grandma wud go and pluck the mature mango , from the tree and do this dish in stone grinder. Right from their farm to our plates......Wow , I become a  fan to this dish from then.I forgot the recipe, So I asked my mom, she gave me this wonderful recipe. U can just add sesame oil to the steamed rice with this thokku or just have it with chapathis, wonderful.. it will be.

1.Mango                     -  1
2.Red chillies             -  10
3.Fenugreek seeds      -   1/4 tbsp
4.Mustard seeds         -    1/4 tbsp
5.Oil                           -    3 tbsp

* Wash and peel the mango. Cut them into cubes.
* Take a blender and add mangoes with red chillies and grind it with a tsp of salt and little water.

* In a pan dry roast the fenugreek seeds and grind them into pwdr after cooling.
* In the same pan, add  oil and temper with mustard seeds ,curry leaves and the fenugreek seed pwdr.
