Ambuli Pachadi (Seasoned Raw Mango) ~ Version 2

Ambuli Pachadi is a simple dish made using raw mangoes. A year back I had posted a recipe for Ambuli Pachadi which I enjoyed it as a kid during my summer vacations. I adapted this recipe from a cook book written by Jaya V Shenoy. I am a great fan of raw mangoes. I love it so much that I can eat it just with salt and chilli powder. When I read the recipe, I decided to try it and post the recipe. The pictures are not eye pleasing but it will please your taste buds for sure. Try making this when the raw mangoes are in season!


  • Raw Mango, chopped- 1 cup
  • Green chilli - 1-2
  • Grated coconut, fresh/frozen - 1/4 cup
  • Oil - 1-2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds - 1/2 tsp
  • Asafoetida (hing) - A pinch
  • Salt- To taste


Chop the raw mango along with the skin (or you can also grate it).

Now take the green chilli and grated coconut in a blender and make a coarse mixture. Transfer to a bowl.

In the same blender add the raw mango pieces and make a coarse paste (if you prefer grating then skip this step).

Transfer it to the bowl containing spicy coconut mixture. Mix well. Add salt. Finally add the seasoning.

For seasoning, heat oil. Once hot, add mustard seeds. After it pops, add in the asafoetida and  turn off the heat. Add this to the raw mango mixture and mix well. Ambuli Pachadi is ready!!

Serve it along with rice and a spicy curry. Above measurement serves two people.
