Ginger Chutney Recipe - Andhra Allam Pachadi Recipe

Ginger Chutney Recipe
Ginger Chutney was very new to me until a reader requested for the recipe.This ginger chutney is  very popular in Andhra called as Allam Pachadi and served with Pesarattu.I made this chutney for breakfast to accompany with idli but I enjoyed the leftover with rice for lunch too.As we know andhra recipes are super spicy, this one is no exception to it.... I loved the mixture of tangy sweet and spicy taste in this chutney.

My Notes:

  • You can even saute onion tomato and add it but shelf life will be less.
  • This chutney keeps well for 2 days in room temperature itself when refrigerated it will extend upto a week.
  • Add water little by little and add only required else the chutney will become watery.
  • After the tempering is done, you can even add the chutney and saute for 2mins and then switch off, this extends the shelf life more.
