Mango Pachadi

Raw Mango  Pachadi

This recipe is a big hit in my house. My father and hubby loves it. BTW this was made by my Mom. As it is made with mango and jaggery it has a sweet,tangy taste and tastes amazing with Rice and Sambhar.

Thanks Mom for sending across the Pachadi and sharing your recipe.


Raw Mango - 1 (Medium Sized, skin peeled and cubed)
Jaggery - 1/2 to 1 cup (Depending on the sourness of the mango and personal taste)
Turmeric Powder - 1/4 teaspoon
Chilly Powder - 1 Teaspoon
Green Chillies - 2 (Finely Chopped)
Coconut Oil - 1 teaspoon
Mustard and curry leaves - for seasoning
Salt - To taste


In a pot, boil a cup of water or enough water to soak the mangoes. Once the water starts boiling add the peeled cubed mango.

After a minute add turmeric powder and after a minute add the chilly powder and then add the grated jaggery.

Cook it for 5 minutes or till the mango is cooked well and the Pachadi has come to a halwa consistency. Once it has reached the halwa consistency remove it from the stove.

Now put a tadka pan on the stove with some oil (Preferably Coconut oil) and add mustard seeds and allow them to splutter and then add the curry leaves and chopped green chillies.

Add this tadka to the pachadi and serve.
