Instant Sweet Mango Pickle Recipe
I am not very fond of pickles and one of the very few pickles I relish are the sweet mango pickle and garlic thokku.I am always sweet toothed and that carries in my taste for pickles too :) Amma make mango thokku, and instant mango pickle both sweet and the spicy versions. I love this sweet version more...I even eat it as such but it is best when served with curd rice, unbeatable combo I can say!
