In Tamil Nadu, mango pachadi is a very special recipe that they prepare for Tamil New Year. Traditionally, they add neem flowers fried in ghee to this to this recipe. But in this recipe, I didn’t add that. This mango pachadi is a mixture of all tastes – sourness from raw mangoes, sweetness from jaggery, bitterness from neem flowers, spiciness from red chilies and flavor from ghee and cardamom which show that life is a mixture of all emotions and feelings.  I hope you’ll like it.

Mango Pachadi

Furthermore, I would like to share some of my suggestions for making perfect mango pachadi. Firstly, I used grated mangoes because it takes very less time to cook. But you can also use the chopped mangoes to this recipe. Secondly, I used palm jaggery because it is good for health. If you don’t have that then add jaggery or even white sugar. If you use jaggery, melt it in 1/4 cup of hot water and filter it to remove any impurities.

Finally, check out my other halwa recipes such as Beetroot Dates Halwa and Pumpkin Halwa.
