Mango pachadi is a must recipe in Tamil New year’s day. Neem flowers are added to the mango pachadi when made on Tamil new year’s day.
Mangoes everywhere and I got two mangoes from Chennai and I decided to make one ‘maanga pachadi’ my hubby’s favourite, and will make Mango rice,my favourite with the remaining mango … Usually mango pachadi recipe either has no coconut or grated coconut will be added at the end. But my MIL adds smoothly ground coconut and that makeGood night 🌛🌜 s it special to blend well the salty,sweety,tangy tastes together.

If you are making for Tamil new year, just garnish(or temper) with dark roasted neem flowers. So that on the new year’s day, you taste all the six tastes and treat all the emotions throughout the year equally
- Sweet (இனிப்பு) – from jaggery,
- Salt(உவர்ப்பு/உப்பு) – from salt,
- spice (காரம்) – green chilli,
- sour(புளிப்பு) – Mango,
- bitter (கசப்பு) – neem flower and
- Astringency (துவர்ப்பு) – mango/Turmeric in one recipe.
