How to make Pacha Manga Pachadi Recipe - Raw Mango Pachadi
To begin making the Pacha Manga Pachadi Recipe, prepare all the ingredients and keep ready.
Lightly peel the skin off the raw mango and cut into small chunks.
Add the raw mango into the pressure cooker, along with jaggery, salt, turmeric powder and red chilli powder. Add 1/2 cup of water and pressure cook for 3 whistles and turn off the heat.

Give it a stir and taste. Add more salt if required.
The last step is to season the Manga Pachadi.
Heat oil in a pan over medium heat; add the mustard seeds, cumin seeds and red chillies. Stir until the seeds crackle.
Add the curry leaves and finally stir in the cooked Raw Mango Pachadi.

The Raw Mango Pachadi/Manga Pachadi will stay for at least one week when refrigerated.
