Happy Ugadi!--Ugadi pacchadi recipe


1 cup of raw fresh mango cleaned, dried, finely chopped along with skin
1 tbsp margosa flowers (neem tree flowers)
1 cup grated jaggery
1 tbsp fresh finely chopped coconut pieces
3 -4 tbsp tamarind paste
red chilli pwd (optional or according to your choice)
1 tbsp roasted chana dal (Putnaala pappu)
salt to taste

Mix all the above ingredients to form a sauce like appearance.I f you want a thin and watery chutney add very little water (2-3 tbsps). You can also add small pieces of sugarcane and pieces of ripe banana along with the above ingredients.

The myriad rich taste of this delicacy tickles and lingers on our tongue for a long time leaving a medley of flavors.I don't have to say that this is one of the most favorite recipes of telugu people :)
