Pacha Manga Pachadi - Onam Sadya Special


I was lost in a different world of travel , vacation and fun ; reluctant to come back . I felt a void , when N - the key ingredient of my bliss - left for job , after all those perfect days together...I wanted to slide back into my pastime's subtle graces ; but didn't have a clue how !!


Somewhere between , I came to it ; the realization that its the enticing aroma of spices , the orchestra of my tinkling pots and pans and the comfort of healthy home cooking is what's missing and that's the only thing that could bring me back on track.
I teased my palates with our favorite spices, brought home those end - of -the -summer produce from farmer's market and aunts', cooked , ate and shared it with a close circle of friends and I slipped back to my green pastures. I learned a bit hard way " Cooking can be therapeutic ".


Pacha manga pachadi , is one of the first things I learnt to cook from N's mom. Usually served for onam or vishu sadya , she makes it every time she has guests over for dinner.Unlike regular pachadi / kichadi yogurt is not used in this , since mango is already tangy.

Here in this recipe , tiny mango pieces are cooked in mustard and ginger infused coconut milk and finished with a flavorful tempering of coconut oil and curry leaves.

Here is a recipe card to keep :)
