Raw Mango Pachadi / Mangai Pachadi
For the month may 2016 Shhh cooking challenge me and priya suresh were paired. We both chatted and gave millet and mushroom to priya whereas she gave tuvar dal and small onion for me. Using that I made Raw Mango Pachadi. Thank you Priya for the simple and healthy ingredients.
