For the month May 2016 Shhh cooking challenge me and priya suresh were paired. We both chatted and gave millet and mushroom to priya whereas she gave tuvar dal and small onion for me. Using that I made Raw Mango Pachadi. Thank you Priya for the simple and healthy ingredients.
Mango Pachadi goes well with curd rice. It can also be served with hot rice and ghee.
Now let us see how to make
- Raw mango – 1
- Tuvar dal – 1 cup (Half cooked)
- Small onion – 10
- Greenchilli – 6
- Curry leaves – few
- Coriander – few
- Oil – 2 tsp
- Mustard – ¼ tsp
- Urad dal – ¼ tsp
- Cumin – ¼ tsp
- Asafoetida – 2 pinch
Half cook tuvar dal with turmeric powder. Peel small onion and chop into two. Slit green chillies. Wash and chop raw mango in to cubes. Heat oil in a pressure cooker and add temperings one by one. When it splutters add onion, curry leaves, green chilli and mango and sauté for few minutes. Add half cooked tuvar dal, salt and ½ cup of water and cook for one whistle. Open the cooker when the steam subsides and boil few minutes. Add coriander leaves and serve hot with rice and ghee.
You can use moong dal instead of tuvar dhal.
Add chillies according to the sourness of mango.
