This Mango Pachadi was done on account of Tamil New year's day . So I have added Vepampoo (Neem flower) . It is optional ingredient .
To know more about Tamil New Year Day , check out these blogs :
Ingredients Needed :
- Raw Mango - 1
- Jaggery 1 - 1 1/2 cup
- Dried Red chillies - 1
- Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
- Urid dhal - 1/4 tsp.
- Veppampoo (Neem flower ) - little
- Salt - a pinch
- Oil - 1 tsp.
- Ghee - little
Chop mangoes it to pieces . you can peel the skin of mangoes if needed. In a kadai add ghee and fry the vempampoo well and keep it aside then add 1 tsp oil and temper it with mustard seeds + urid dhal + dried red chilli now add the mango pieces + a pinch of salt and add little water and allow it to boil , till done then add the jaggery add allow it dissolve well , if needed add little water. Once it gets thicker switch off the flame and add vepampoo finally.
Jaggery may contains impurities so dissolve it separately in a kadai and strain it and then add it to the mangoes at the final stage , you can also add little rice flour mixed with water , to get the pachadi into thicker consistency.
