Every year I look forward to the mango season specially for making this pachadi. Though this pachadi is an essential on Tamil New Year's day I make it quite often all through the season as it is a great combo all the flavors and the tangy taste is enough to make my kids eat their lunch without any fuss.
Mango Sweet Pachadi
Peel the mango skin and cut into thin slices. Heat ½ cup of water and add the mango slices with turmeric powder and salt. Let it come to a boil.
Add the jaggery, sambar powder and cook mashing all together till the mango is soft and tender on a low flame.
In another stove place a heat oil or ghee, add mustard seeds and let it pop. Add the urad dal , neem flowers, if using and curry leaf.
Sauté and add this to the simmering mango gravy. Add the grated coconut and let it cook for 2 more mins.
Sweet and tangy Mango pachadi is ready to be served with rice.
