Vada Pappu(Sri Rama Navami Special)

Today I am blogging Sri Rama Navami special Vada pappu. Vadapappu with panakam will be offered as naivedyam to Lord Rama on Sri Rama Navami. Raw mangoes are used for preparing this prasad. As we are from brahmin family we use to offer this to ladies with haldi kumkum done for lord Gowri in this Chatramasam. Non sweet lovers like me will enjoy this dish definitely.

Raw mango grated - 1 cup(according to taste, if u want more sourness can add more)
