Mango Pachadi / Mamidikaya Pachadi / Mango Relish

       Mango and summer has lot of connections.We used to go to our friend's village ,in our child hood days for our vacations.There will be lot of mango trees ,just behind the farm house. Where we can  grab the mangoes ,without climbing the trees. Freshly picked mangoes ,were brought to the shed laid outside for cooking.The maids will prepare lot of dishes out of it. Like mango chutney,mango pickle,mango rice. One important dish will be this mango pachadi.We used to wander around the village and visit all the farms.After physically burning our calories,the lunch will be divine for us.The lunch will surely include this pachadi.After our lunch we will run to see the milk man milking the cows.The fresh milk will then be poured into the filter coffee, yes it is poured directly into the dication,without heating.That coffee will never have any competiter at all.Unforgettable days.I was just carried away with my memories.
    Coming back to the post ,mango pachadi or mango relish is a tangy side dish for rice.Though there are several varieties, in preparing,this is very simple and easy preparation.Mom used to do this often during summer,where we get mangoes a lot in chennai.My MIL will prepare it slightly different.Will post the recipe soon.Untill then enjoy this pachadi with curd rice.
