April 14 is Tamil New Year
Tamil New Year is a time for celebration in most Tamilian households as it marks the beginning of a new year and harvest season. One dish that is made during this festival is maanga pachchadi or mango chutney. The significance of this dish is that it has all the 5 tastes -- sweet, salty, spicy, bitter and sour -- that implies the different phases of life and how we must all wade through them as we live. Fairly quick and simple to make, this sweetish sauce can be consumed as an accompaniment.
Here's how to prepare this yummy treat.
Your maanga pachchadi is ready. You can choose to serve it warm or cooled and it can be enjoyed with parathas, dosa and idli.
