If you want to experience the ‘kaaram’ (spicy hot) ruchi that Andhra food is known for, then you should taste the non-vegetarian fare which is sure to get taste buds tingling and set your tongue on fire. The fiery hot flavor is there and not in the vegetarian food which is definitely not spicy rather ‘mildly spiced’.
A most sought after meat dish for the carnivores in Andhra is Mamsam (mutton) pulusu, a traditional Andhra meat curry. A very simple recipe with very few basic ingredients. The meat pieces are cooked in a ginger-garlic-green chilli-onion base, spiced with only red chilli powder and then simmered in tamarind, the most important ingredient, that exquisitely enhances the flavor and takes it to another level. The appetizing aroma as the mutton pieces simmer in the flavorful alliance of spice and tamarind is simply irresistable and addictive. This classic all-time favorite Indian meat recipe is a perfect accompaniment to rice.
