About Recipe

Famous Andhra style ginger chutney or allam pachhadi goes well with pesarattu, dosa or idli. Even you can eat it with plain rice too.  You can refrigerate it for more than 15 days. It is very tasty, easy to prepare and healthy chutney.

      Andra is known for its spicy flavors and yes this chutney is spicy but at the same tangy and sweet too because I have added jaggery and tamarind to this chutney. So let’s see how to make this super yummy chutney.
