Ginger chutney | Allam pachadi recipe

Ginger chutney, allam pachadi is Andhra style pachadi recipe with sesame seeds. This has tamarind and jaggery which will make it sweet and sour which complements the strong flavor of ginger.

This can be stored for 15 to 20 days in the refrigerator if we don’t use much water while making the chutney. Store in airtight glass jar in the cooler section of the refrigerator(Not in the freezer). I generally grind it into a very thick paste, take some portion of ginger chutney and mix water before serving it. This goes very well with Idly, dosa, pesarattu, upma, and even cheela.

Sesame seeds are rich in copper, calcium, iron, manganese, vitamin B1, zinc, selenium. I try to include various nuts and seeds in our day to day cooking. I use sesame seeds paste, called tahini in smoothies and hummus.
