ABOUT Ripe Mango Pachadi (Mampazha Pachadi) - A Kerala favourite! RECIPE

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!
