Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya Pachadi (Sesame-Green Mango Chutney)

Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter N
Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh
Dish: Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya Pachadi (Sesame-Green Mango Chutney)
Letter N stands for veggies like Nuvvulu (sesame seeds), Nimmakaya (lemon), Nethi Beerakaya (fuzzy gourd) etc. N also stands for Neyyi or ghee which when added on hot dal and steamed rice makes it taste out of this world. 
Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya Pachadi (Sesame-Green Mango Chutney)
For today, I made Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya pachadi (sesame-green mango chutney). Recipe is from my dear neighbor from India. I was raking my mom's brain for dishes that start with 'N' and then she gave me this recipe that my neighbor makes back home. This is a very simple, almost no-cook except for the sauteed tempering. It tastes great with rice, upma, idli, dosa or just about anything that needs a little something-something to dip.

Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya Pachadi (Sesame-Green Mango Chutney)
Raw Mango - 1 small, peeled and diced
Sesame seeds - ¼cup
Green chilies - 2-3 (adjust per taste)
Salt - to taste

For Tempering:
Urad dal (minapappu) - 1tsp
Mustard seeds - 1tsp
Cumin seeds - 1tsp
Asafoetida - ¼tsp
Dry red chilies - 2
Curry leaves - 8-10

  • Heat 1tsp oil in a small sauce pan, fry the green chilies briefly until the skins crackle, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Grind sesame seeds, mango pieces, green chilies and salt to a smooth paste without adding any water.
  • Remove chutney into a bowl.
  • Heat 2tsp oil and add the tempering ingredients and once the seeds start to splutter, add it to the chutney and serve.
