Mangai Pachadi / Green Mango Instant Pickle

Most of us like to eat the raw green mango with chili powder and salt. My mom used to make mango pickle at home. She would make them when I’m not at home because I would eat like food even before done. Mangai pachadi is easy to make except shredding part. We can eat alone or with rice or as an instant pickle. This is one of the easiest dishes to make, so let’s start it.



Green mango - 1 cup,shredded
Oil - 1 Tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1/8 tsp
Urad dal - 1 tsp
Split Bengal gram - 1 tsp
Curry leaves - 10
Chili powder - 1/2 tsp *
Turmeric powder - 1/10 tsp
Salt *


After shredding, squeeze the excess water from the mango as much as you can and pat dry with kitchen towel for 15 min to remove the excess water. In the meantime heat the oil in a small pan. Then add the mustard seeds and once the mustard seeds start to splatter switch off the stove and then add all the ingredients except turmeric powder, chili powder and salt. Transfer the mango into a bowl. After the Urad and Bengal gram turns golden brown then add the chili powder, turmeric powder and salt. Pour this to the bowl and mix well.
