Chalimidi is a unique traditional sweet recipe of Andhra. Whenever there is a celebration like a baby shower (seemantham) or Sri Rama Navami festival, you can be sure that chalimidi will be a star player. 🙂 There are 2 versions of chalimidi, one is uncooked or pachi chalimidi and the other is paakam chalimdi which involves making sugar syrup. Chalimidi recipe involving the preparation of sugar or jaggery syrup can be quite tricky for beginners. I will share that version too in a future post.
