Sweet and Spicy Manga Pachadi

Today,I am sharing my south indian thali made for tamil new year...I luv to shop for groceries and vegetables and its absolute fun to make the whole meal..Of course,It is a delicious and heavenly meal...Whenever i came across the word "thali" , i  remember vivek's joke..Though,the lavish meal is not made daily,the spread is everyone's favourite.

I will share the recipes one by one...


This recipe is from my MIL's mil.I never miss it for every tamil new year...The pachadi is mix of sweet(jaggery),tangy(mango),spicy(chilli powder) and the bitter(neem flower) taste

Sweet and Spicy Mango Pachadi
Kili Mooku Raw Mango -1
Jaggery-3/4 cup
Chilli powder-half tsp
Neem flower-5-6
No need of salt

Method
1.Peel the skin of the raw mango and slice the mango 
2.Boil a cup of water and add the mango slices,seed and let it cook for 3-4 minutes
3.Crush the jaggery and add it to mango
4.Once the jaggery is dissolved,add the chilli powder and sprinkle the neem flower before serving

The actual recipe needs 2 chopped green chillies and a tsp of neem flowers....But I substituted with chilli powder and very less neem flower...U can try in both the ways too..
