Malabar spinach chutney recipe – Andhra roti pachadi

Malabar spinach chutney is my favorite recipe made in motar pestle with Malabar spinach and raw mango as main ingredients. Now we are getting raw mangoes year around. But in my childhood days, when we get good raw mangoes in summer, this was a must to do chutney.

It is called as roti pachadi in Telugu as it is prepared in traditional motar pestle. This will taste yummy with hot rice and dallop of ghee 😀 This will also taste good with any roti.

We can keep this in refrigerator for couple of days. Prepare this and keep it aside for couple of hours if possible, mango will release its flavors and it will become more yummy 😋

If you don’t have motar pestle, you can do this in grinder as well but make sure you don’t make it complete paste. Instead of Malabar spinach, normal spinach can also be used. You can read about tomato pachadi recipe here.
