Mangai Pachadi
Recipe and Photo courtesy: K. Kamala and Mythili (my grandma and aunt)

My grandmother is an expert in this pachadi. I still remember those summer holidays when Paati used to make Pachadi for my father..
Recently my athai and paati made manga pachadi in microwave! They say, it is simpler to make this pachadi in microwave ( else there is a possibility that the the mango pulp might stick to the pan and get charred) . Here is their super recipe!

Ingredients:
1 medium size raw mango
3/4 cup powdered jaggery/Gur
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
2 slit green chillies
Hing 3 dashes
Methi/Fenugreek powder 1/2 tsp
Salt to taste
Oil 1 tsp
1 tsp mustard seeds
1 red chilli

Peel off the skin of raw mango. Coarsely chop raw mango. Transfer to a microwave safe bowl.
Sprinkle salt, add turmeric and hing. Add the slit green chillies.
Add 1 cup water to the manga pieces and toss into microwave.
Microwave for 10-12 minutes.
Remember to check the bowl on and off..The gravy must be kept wet always. Add little more water if the pachadi is too dry.
Mix well. Add the powdered jaggery and methi powder.
Add another 1/2 cup water. Continue to microwave for another 3 minutes.
If pachadi consistency is not yet achieved (like in the pic), microwave for few more minutes till done.
Add oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds and a red chilli.
Transfer to the Pachadi bowl! Check for salt.

Enjoy with a wholesome South Indian meal :)

I made this for Tamizh New year but not in a microwave. Seems like an easier and efficient method.
