Mango Pachadi (Chutney) Recipe
Mango Pachadi (Chutney)
Happy Tamil New Year!!
It is customary to make this sweet, sour and spicy mango pachadi on New Year day. This is my mom's recipe. It's my favorite and I love it with curd rice.
- 1 Raw mango
- 2 tsp oil
- 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
- 1/2 tsp urud dal
- 1/4 tsp hing
- Few curry leaves
- 1 Green chilli
- 2 Red chillies
- 1/3 cup Jaggery
- 1 Cup water
- 1 tsp rice flour
Chop mango into big pieces (with skin).
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard seeds, urud dal, red chillies, hing, green chilli, curry leaves.
When mustard seeds crackle, add mango pieces and fry for 10 minutes.
Add 1 cup water, jaggery and salt. Cook until mangoes turn soft. It takes about 10 to 15 minutes.
Take rice flour, add little water and make a thick paste. Add this to the mango mixture. Cook for a minute.
Vepamboo (neem flower) is roasted and added in the end. But I didn't have any.
Serve along with rice, sambar and curry.
