Mango pachadi recipe with sugar
Mango pachadi / Manga pachadi is a must to do recipe for Tamil new year neivedyam. But we make raw mango pachadi with jaggery, coconut and dried Neem flowers. But recently one of my friends suggested me to try mango pachadi with sugar instead of jaggery. Its a very easy and quick version when compared with my traditional recipe.

This morning I prepared mango pachadi with sugar just for a change. It tasted yummy like mango jam. Myself and Raksha loved it a lot. Of course, its taste and flavor cannot be compared with Mango pachadi adding jaggery. Still I liked the ease of this recipe. Friends, do try this easy mango pachadi with sugar for a change and let me know how you liked it. Lets see how to make manga pachadi with step by step pictures.

  • Wash and peel the skin of raw mango. Slice into big pieces. In a pressure cooked base, take the mango pieces, add 1/3 cup of water and a pinch of salt. If you don't want to cook the mango in the cooker base directly, you can keep them in a separate bowl by adding 2 cups of water in the cooker base. Mango gets steamed and cooked well.

  • Pressure cook in high flame for one whistle. Open the lid after steam is released. Mango gets cooked but not so mushy. You can find few pieces here and there.
  • Add sugar to the cooked mango pieces. Mix and boil in low flame till sugar melts completely. If the pachadi is too thick, you can add little water.

  • Temper mustard seeds, pinched red chilli, curry leaves and add to pachadi. For Tamil New Year, you can add dried Neem flowers while tempering. Mix well and switch off the flame. Transfer to a serving bowl immediately. Do not store in the cooker. Mango may react with the metal. So transfer to a bowl and serve with rice. This pachadi thickens after it cools down. So you can add some water if needed while serving to adjust the consistency.
