Manga Pachadi - Mango sweet chutney

This sweet, spicy, tangy dish, is one of the many food items that is served in a feast. I believe this dish is a speciality of Tirunelveli district, which lies in the southern tip of Tamil Nadu, as my grandmother has her roots there, she used to make this often at home, as a matter of fact most of her cooking, is inspired from that region. This pachadi is served with rice, along with avial, kootu, porial, pickle etc, to balance the taste, but this can be eaten along with chapathi or poori also. Kids will love this, sweet and sour, spicy pachadi. Mine does.

1. Raw Mango - 1
2. Jaggery - 1/2 cup melted
3. Red chilly - 8
4. Mustard + urad dal - 1tsp
5. Asafoetida - a pinch
6. Curry leaves - few

1. Cut mango in cubes and cook in little water.
2. When the mango is cooked, add melted jaggery and let it boil until it thickens.
3. Heat a tsp of oil in a pan, add mustard + urad dal, split red chillies and when it crackles, add curry leaves and asafoetida, give it a stir, remove from heat and pour it in the mango and jaggery mixture. Mix well and serve.
