When I buy mangoes, the first thing I would do is to make this mango pachadi. My hubby loves it too. Sometimes, I make using jaggery, and if I do not have jaggery at home, I make using sugar. Yes, while making this recipe I did not have jaggery so I made using sugar. Raw mango pachadi with jaggery will be little dark in color.
I still have one mango left in the refrigerator. I eat this with sambar, rasam, mor kuzhambu and sometimes even with curd rice. I usually like to eat it with sambar. During the season of mangoes, I prefer to eat this dish rather than drinking mango juice.
