Mangai (Mango) Pachadi

Mangoes are in season now. And we all love the yummy mangai pachadi and the mango thokku. Both these taste awesome when prepared using half ripe mangoes. Pachadi is a blend of tastes - tanginess from mangoes, sweetness from jaggery.
Raw Mango - 1 (preferably the totapuri variety)
Jaggery - 1/2 cup
Green Chili - 1
Salt - a pinch
Mustard Seeds - 1/4 tbsp
Oil for cooking

Melt the jaggery in boiled water and remove all the impurities.
Cook the sliced mangoes along with salt and green chili for 5-10 minutes.
Add the jaggery to the cooked mangoes.
Once it reached a proper consistency, heat a tbsp of oil and add mustard seeds. When it splutters add it to the pachadi and serve. 

Bon Appetit!!
