Tamil Arusuvai Maanga Pachdi Or Instant Raw Mango Raitha - Plattershare - Recipes, food stories and food lovers
Happy Tamil New Year to you and your family 🙏 Six tastes of food are sweet, sour, salty, bitter, pungent and astringent. It is called as Arusuvai in Tamil. Today on Tamil New Year, Maanga Pachdi is the main dish which we prepare in home along with other dishes like payasam, wadas, sambar, rice and curd Raitha. Maanga Pachdi or instant raw Mango jam/ raitha is a mixture of six tastes and consists of Jaggery, Neem flower, red chilli, Salt, turmeric and Raw Mango. It is in-taken first on the New year to represent the acceptance of different emotions(Happiness, Sorrow, Anger, Fear, Disgust and Surprise) in an equal manner. This Raitha is specially made in summers for better immunity and to fight from heat and falling sick due to changing climate.
