Chukkakura pachadi – Khatta palak chutney – a traditional Andhra style pachadi recipe with chukkakura also called as khatta palak or garden sorrel and sesame seeds in a mortar pestle.
Chukkakura called as sorrel leaves in English is a type of green leafy vegetable which is sour in taste. This is a winter veggie and today I have used the leaves which are grown in my terrace garden. We usually get these leaves in the market all year around but I couldn’t grow these leaves at home in summers.
Generally, we make dal using these leaves but this chutney tastes good and stores for a day at room temperature and for a couple of days in the refrigerator. I have used sesame seeds to make this recipe, you can substitute it with peanuts as well. As these leaves are quite sour in taste, these seeds help in balancing the sourness.
