Ripe Mango Pachadi (Mampazha Pachadi) A Kerala Favourite!

4.50 from 4 votes

Pachadi which is a Kerala recipe can be used as a side, accompaniment as well as a main curry with plain boiled rice.
This recipe is taken from noted blogger and author Ammini Ramachandran's award winning book - Grains, Greens and Grated Coconuts.
I have added a tempering before serving the Pachadi as I wanted it to take the place of the curry as I was serving to with rice. Its absolutely mouthwatering and a must try for those who love South Indian cuisine!

I am a passionate foodie who loves to cook, serve and love to see people relishing my creations. Since the time I was small I used to wonder about the 'how' of things in the kitchen.

Then when I finally ventured as an unprofessional kitchen helper for my late grand-mother (a par excellent cook in her own generation) I was fascinated by the amount of stuff you could do to a simple milk and rice to form a most yummy pudding.

Here I am sharing my recipes with a will to learn from some and educate others as well!
