Allam Pachadi

My husband is a great lover of Andhra foods .
When we visited our friend's home who is
a Andhraite he tasted this and loved so much.
My friend is kind enough to share the recipe from her
mom and allows me to use in the blog too.
Ginger - 250 gm
Tamarind - 1/2 kg
Jaggery - 300 gms
Chilli powder - 1 cup
Salt - 1 cup
Whole jeera - 25 gms
Methi seeds - 25 gms
Garlic - 100 gms
Oil - 1/2 - 3/4 kg
  • Peel the ginger skin and wash and allow it to dry in a cloth.
  • Heat tamarind with little bit of water in a medium flame for 5 min.
  • Powder jeera and methi.
  • Grind ginger,soaked tamarind,chilli powder ,salt and garlic.
  • Add jeera and methi powder.
  • In the end add jaggery.
  • Keep the mixture aside.
  • Heat oil in a kadai.
  • Add mustard and channa dal.
  • Once it splutters switch off the flame.
  • Allow it to cool completely.
  • Add oil to the ginger mixture.

Keep the chutney in a clean air tight jar.

I am very happy to receive another Rocking girl Blogger award from
