First of all, Wash the mango and chop it into small sized pieces with the skin. Then remove the neem flowers from its stem. Also, soak tamarind in 1 cup of water for 1/2 an hour. Then extract tamarind water and discard the pulp.
To the tamarind water, add the jaggery. I used powdered and pure jaggery, so it was easy for mixing. If using the whole jaggery, crush it and use. Then add pepper powder.
Add required salt and mango pieces.
Finally, add neem flowers and mix well.
