Raw Mango and Onion Takku ~ Kairi-Kanda Takku

This is a delicious and tangy raw mango recipe. Onion gives crunch and little bit sweetness too. Takku is a type of instant pickle but it looks like chutney.  

Ingredients :

  • Raw Mango, grated- 1 medium sized (½ cup)
  • Onion, chopped finely- ¾ to 1 cup (I prefer to use white onion)
  • Salt- to taste
  • Mustard seeds- 1 tsp
  • Fenugreek seeds- ¼ tsp
  • Asafoetida (hing)- ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder- ¼  tsp
  • Chilli powder- 1 tsp or to taste
  • Jaggery, grated- 2 tsp to 2 tbsp (as per the sourness of the raw mango and your like, I used 2 tsp)
  • Oil-  2 tbsp


  • Peel and grate the raw mango. 
  • Combine chopped onion, chili powder, salt and jaggery in the bowl. Mix well with hands.
  • Heat oil in a small pan. Add mustard seeds. When they splutter, add fenugreek seeds, hing and turmeric powder. Let it cool.
  • Pour this tadka on the mango-onion mixture and mix well.
  • Serve it with paratha or curd rice or as side in a meal.
  • It can be stored 3 to 4 days in a refrigerator.
