Tamil new year is celebrated on 14th April every year. Generally we do raw mango pachadi, neem flower rasam for Tamil new year. While casually talking with my friend’s mom few weeks back, she was telling about this ripe mango pachadi, and when she was telling about that itself i was so tempted to try it out. When i saw the ripe alphonso mangoes in the nearby Indian shop few days back, i immediately picked it up and tried it today at home. It tasted very well . For a change from the usual mango pachadi with raw maanga, try this ripe mango pachadi for this Tamil new year. Wishing all my readers a very Happy Tamil new year. Check out my tamil new year recipes collection.

- Cook till the mangoes becomes soft. Filter the jaggery and pour it to the cooked mangoes.
- Grind the coconut, green chili and rice flour into a fine paste. You can add little water while grinding. Actually later after tasting i felt, i should have tempered the green chili along with mustard seeds. Though i used half green chili , i felt it was bit spicy. So do not grind the green chili.

- Mango pachadi is ready to serve.
- Do not add more rice flour than mentioned.
