Mango Pachadi/Maangai Pachadi - Tamil New Year's Day Special

Mango pachadi is a must on Tamil New Years day, it is so special because it has all the six taste “arusuvai” [Innipu, uppu, pullippu, kasappu, urrapu and thuvarpppu].

Here’s how to make it with step by step photos…



Ingredients

Mango (Raw mango)
1 large or 3 small
Jaggery powdered
½ cup
Mustard seeds
¼ tsp
Cumin seeds
¼ tsp
Dried Red chillies
2 or 3
Red chilli powder
1 tsp
Turmeric powder
¼ tsp
Oil
2 tsp
Curry leaves
5
Salt
One pinch
Neem flowers
1 tbsp

Method

Peel the mango, with peeler or knife. Now make slices and cut them to cubes. The size of it does not really matter.


In a kadai heat oil, add mustard seeds after it splutters, add cumin seeds, dried red chillies, curry leaves and sauté for 20 sec. Now add the mango pieces and sauté for 20 sec, add ¼ cup of water and cook for 5 to 7 min.


Now add the jaggery, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, salt and stir well. Cook for another 5 – 7 min. Wait for it to turn to thick sauce and switch off the stove.


Finally garnish with neem flowers. This is totally optional, but is a tradition to add during the Tamil New Years day.


Since I don’t get neem flowers in the place I live, I have skipped this step.

Alternate Method

Heat jaggery with ½ cup of water, the jaggery will start to melt in about 4-5 minutes.  Now switch off the stove, filter it with a strainer. This straining eliminates the debris from jaggery. Then add it to the cooked mango and follow the same procedure.

Yummy and delicious mango pachadi is ready to be enjoyed.
