ALLAM PACHADI / GINGER CHUTNEY ANDHRA STYLE


Delicious and spicy Andhra style allam pachadi (ginger chutney) made with roasted lentils, ginger, chillies, tamarind and spices can be served with dosas, idlis, uttappams etc etc.. If you want to make it a bit milder you can add a little onion, grated coconut and tomato. But I prefer the strong ginger flavour and skip adding them.

Ingredients:
Ginger ......  3 or 4 inch piece
Urad dal ..... 1 tbsp
Chana dal .... 1 tbsp
Dry red chillies .. 2
Coriander seeds .. 1 tbsp
Methi seeds ........ 1/4 tsp
Cumin seeds ..... 1/2 tsp
Tamarind .......... size of half a lemon or as per your liking
Salt ................... to taste
Oil .................... 1 tbsp

Tempering:
Mustard seeds .... 1 tsp
Asafoetida .......... 1 pinch
Curry leaves ....... 4-5
Oil .................... 1 tbsp


Method:

In a pan dry roast the lentils, red chillies and spices.








Add 1 tbsp oil and the ginger pieces, tamarind.










Saute for half a minute till the spices give out a nice aroma.










Transfer them to the mixie. Add  salt to taste and little more water to grind.








Remove it into a bowl. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a small pan and add the tempering ingredients. Mix them into the ginger chutney.
