Manga pachadi (Raw Mango Sweet Pachadi)

This is a semi-sweet, semi-sour dish with a pinch of spice and that makes it different and special :) I love the way amma makes Manga Pachadi and tried it all by myself, following her recipe. It was absolutely yummy and I felt so nostalgic :) Her way of cooking is very healthy and she hasn't included coconut in this recipe. Of course, you can add ground coconut, if you like!

What She Uses -

  • Raw mango - 2
  • Jaggery - 1/3 cup
  • Green chillies - 2
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Salt - a pinch
  • Rice flour - 1 tbsp (optional, avoid if possible) 
To Temper -
  • Mustard - 1 tsp
  • Dry Red chilly -1
  • Oil - 1/2 tsp
  • Curry leaves (optional) - a few

How To -

  • Slice mango pieces and cook with sufficient water, adding salt and turmeric. 

  • Slit green chillies and add to the pan.
  • Watch out if the water gets drained and add a little more water. Simmer the flame.
  • Once the mangoes are cooked, add jagery pieces and let boil.
  • Wait for a good consistency to be reached. If the mixture is runny, mix rice flour with water and add to the pan. This helps to thicken the mixture. But the pachadi tastes lovely if you do not add any rice flour.
  • Temper with black mustard seeds (கடுகு), 1 red chilly and a few curry leaves in oil.
