Regular readers of my blog will know that I’m a huge fan of fresh coriander leaves. Pachi kothimira pachadi is a very simple recipe that is easy to make, healthy and flavorful. This authentic pachadi, one of Andhraâ€™s raw food side dishes, makes a excellent pachadi with famed Andhra Pesarattu. This humble pachadi with a tangy-sweet flavor due to the tamarind and jaggery and subtle spice taste of the green chillis, is prepared by grinding raw coriander leaves with tamarind and green chillis.
