Green Mango Chutney (Mango Thokku with Video)

Green mango chutney – a spicy and tangy south Indian style chutney that is a classic accompaniment with rice and curry. In general, a traditional south Indian meal is incomplete without pickle/ chutney and varieties of side dishes. Chutney is an all-time favourite accompaniment in Indian regional cuisine.

Chutney with flavourful spices teamed with the tang of raw mangoes is sure to turn a dull meal into a finger-licking delicacy!! Chutneys made with seasonal fruits and vegetables taste best with its season and at its peak. Mangoes, the divine fruit being in season, I’ve come up with this delicious mango chutney recipe today. Check out one more mango recipe mango lassi in this blog that you might like to try.

This chutney is also called as thokku in some parts, pickle in other parts of India. Although it ‘s called chutney, it is more like fruit preserve cooked with spices and jarred. I, always feel the difference between chutney and thokku is often confusing. For instance, although the ingredients used and cooking process is the same, this dish is called as mamidikaya turumu pachadi (grated mango pickle) in some parts of Andhra, but mamidikaya thokku (mango thokku) in Telangana. Regardless of name, this dish is sure to brighten up your plate and palate.

Versatile green mango chutney

This chutney is so versatile that it is not only an essential part of thali but makes winning combination with lemon rice, coconut rice, curd rice. It is an essential part of almost every Indian meal and adds a refreshing flavour to any dish it is paired with. I like this chutney with dosa or pesarattu, especially in the mango season. 

Green mango chutney recipe variations

This lip-smacking chutney can be customised to suit your palette. I have grated the mango so that we get to taste the tangy bits of mango, you could use grind mango to a coarse paste instead. You could add a little jaggery to balance the tangy and spicy flavour and to add a touch of sweetness. Add few crushed garlic pods for extra flavour and taste.
