Manga Sweet Pachadi - Mango Pachadi - Mango Jam

Sweet Pachadi is usually a fruit cooked in turmeric water, then sweetened with jaggery, spiced with chilli powder. The most popular ones are made with raw mango and pineapple. It is usually made for a feast. This Mango Pachadi is awesome with the sourness from the raw mango, sweetness from the jaggery and the spiciness from the chilli powder. You can use this as a spread for Toast as well.


Raw Mango 1 (about 1 cup)
Jaggery 1/2 cup (start with 1/4 cup. Mine is not a very sweet jaggery)
Red Chilli Powder 1 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp

To temper
Oil a little
Mustard 1/2 tsp

Method of Preparation

1. Peal and chop the mango.

2. In a pan, add the chopped mango along with a little water and turmeric powder. Boil till it is cooked well.

3. In another pan, add the jaggery and little water. When it is melted, filter out any impurities. Keep ready.

4. Add the jaggery syrup and chilli powder to the mango mix. Simmer till it thickens.

5. Heat a little oil in a pan. Add mustard. When it sputters, add to the pachadi..
