Quick Raw Mango Recipes

Summer is the season for mangoes. Ripe mangoes are a treat in themselves but raw mangoes has a taste of its own. Just the thought of raw mangoes, makes ones mouth water!
The varieties of recipes that can be prepared with the raw mangoes are endless – pickles, panna, pachadi, chutney etc.

I had one fairly large Totapuri Raw Mango. So I decided to make two dishes (pachadi and chutney) for the price of one! In most south-Indian households there is always a stock of coconut gratings. So these recipes can be done in a jiffy.

 I grated the whole raw mango and kept aside about two heaped tablespoons for making chutney and used the rest for making pachadi.

Raw Mango Pachadi



Raw Mango
1 medium size
Coconut gratings
½ cup
Green chillies
A pinch
As per taste
Seasoning ingredients

2 tsps
Mustard seeds
½ tsp
Curry leaves
1 sprig


  1. Wash the raw mango and pat dry it with a clean kitchen towel.
  2. Grate the mango either manually or in a food processor.
  3. Grind coarsely the coconut gratings along with green chilies, salt and asafetida with a little water. Place the ground mixture in a bowl.
  4. To this ground mixture, add the grated mango and mix well.
  5. Lastly heat oil in a small pan and add the seasoning ingredients in it. When the mustard seeds stops spluttering, switch off the gas and pour the contents in the mixture of coconut and raw mango gratings. Mix well and serve.

  • Pachadi is generally used as a side dish. It also goes well with chapattis.
  • This is a typical Konkani (GSB community) recipe

Raw Mango Chutney
