Pachi Mirapakaya Pachadi ~ Green Chili Chutney



We Andhras love our Pachadis (chutney/condiment) and in our home pachadis are revered. Seriously. Mom makes the BEST pachadis you can ever imagine. The aromas that fill the kitchen during the preparatory process is something that has to be experienced. For instance, take today’s pachadi which calls for green chilies. The intoxicating aroma of roasted green chilies and the sizzle of tempered spices hold promise of an eternally pleasing meal to come.

Most of the pachadi recipes you will find on my blog are simple and straightforward with minimal ingredients. The key is to use farm fresh vegetables and good quality ingredients.

    Hi Sailu, Good post as usual. I had what maybe is a silly question. The above chutney looks like it has some base of something like coconut or peanuts. My question is whether that thickness came entirely from the urad dal or did you maybe forget to mention coconut or peanuts in the recipe? Just asking… :)

      Valid question, Sarita. :) The thickness is from the dal and tamarind pulp. I did not use the paste. For convenience of readers who usually use paste, I have mentioned paste in the recipe. No peanuts or coconut required.

    This chutney looks truly fantastic. I can tell if I made this at my house I would be asked when dinner was ready to many times but still will have to give this a try. This doesn’t even look like it will take a lot of time or ingredients and thats perfect for the way I normally cook at home.

  25. Shilpzy says:

    Hi, how long can this be stored for once its made? I have a tonne of chillies and i’m looking at what i can do with it. This is definately one i would like to make, but i’d like to have it last for a while. Can it be frozen? I haven’t made much south indian food, and have frozen even fewer times, and experience tells me that south indian food doesn’t freeze very well…..any suggestions?

  26. Pcatherine30 says:

    can i substitute the dal with any other dal…. i have moong and some yellow one…. toor i think….
    also tamarind?????

    • Anonymous says:

      Urad dal is essential. Substitute tamarind with lemon juice. Add 3 tbsps of lemon juice. If necessary add more.
