Mango Pachadi 2

This is how we make mango pachadi in my mom's place. In every kerala Iyers' family, we use coconut for most of the recipes. Here is the recipe.

  1. Mango - 1 cup (chopped into cubes)
  2. Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
  3. Salt to taste
  4. Jaggery - 2 tbsp (acc to taste)
  5. Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  6. Coconut - 1 1/2 tbsp
  7. Red chillies - 2 (acc to taste)
  8. Rice flour - 2 tsp
For seasoning:-
  1. Oil - 1/2 tsp
  2. Mustard seeds - 1/4 tsp
  3. Urad dhall - 1/2 tsp
  4. Curry leaves - few
  5. Asafoetida powder - a pinch
First fry mustard seeds (given in ingredients), coconut and red chillies to golden brown. Let it cool and grind it into a fine paste. Take a pan, put the mangoes, add required amount of water, turmeric powder, salt and let it cook till the mango becomes tender. Now add the grounded mixture to it and let it cook for another 3 mts. Add jaggery and let it cook for another 2 mts. Let everything mix nicely together. In order to adjust the consistency, mix the rice flour with 2 tbsp of water and pour it on top the pachadi. Turn off the stove when the required consistency arrives. Take a pan, pre heat oil, add mustard seeds when it splutters add urad dhall, asafoetida powder and curry leaves and fry it till golden brown. Pour it on top of pachadi.
