Manga thokku is one of my favs. It’s kind of pickle and goes well with curd rice, rasam rice and can also be eaten with idili, dosa etc. My Friend’s mom used to prepare this and pack it to me when I was in school. Since the first time I had it at her house I just loved it. I was pestering her to give the recipe for long time and here I got it from my friend recently.
