Raw mango/manga pachadi recipe | Sweet mango pachadi | Mangai vellam pachadi (with jaggery) with detailed stepwise photos.

Pachadi refers to a traditional South Indian fresh pickle served as a side dish. It is usually made from seasonal veggies, fruits, curd/yogurt, jaggery syrup, coconut, etc. I regularly make fresh pachadi with cucumber, raw mango, carrot, onion, tomato, coconut, etc.

This mangai pachadi consists of sweet, sour, and spicy flavors. Mango pachadi calls for raw mango, jaggery, and spices. We usually consume this as a side dish for sambar, rasam, curd rice, and dosa in our home. Also, I love to spread it on a bread toast, which tastes similar to mango sweet jam.

This mango pachadi recipe is quite different from the traditional mangai pachadi (the one we make for the Tamil New Year festival). It usually consists of 6 flavors like sweet(Inippu), salt(Uppu), spice(Urappu), bitter(Kasapu), sour (Pulippu), and astringent (thuvarpu). We use jaggery for sweet flavor, salt for salty, red chili for spice, neem flower for bitter, raw Mango for sour, and turmeric for astringent.

In my mango pachadi recipe, I have skipped the neem flower as my grandma makes this for our everyday meal. Also, it is our family's favorite side dish, and she makes it when the mango is in season. In Chennai, we get different varieties of raw green mango; the "Kilimooku manga" variety is a perfect one for this recipe. However, here I made it with Mexican green mango.

In Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Karnataka, Kerala, and Tamil Nadu, pachadi is a side dish curry similar to the North Indian raita. It is made of fresh vegetables and served as an accompaniment for rice and snacks like idli, dosa, and pesarattu. Sometimes, even the peels/skin of veggie like ridge guard is used to make pachadi.
