Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter D

Theme: A-Z Vegetarian Dishes from Andhra Pradesh

Dish: D for Dosakaya Pachadi 

Letter D stands for veggies like Dondakaya (ivy gourd), Dosakaya (cuke lemon). D also stands for dishes like Dappalam which is a spicy, tangy stew made with toor dal and an assortment of veggies. Daddojam, spiced curd rice or Dalcha, a Hyderabadi lentil dish and so on.

I decided to make a traditional chutney recipe using dosakaya (cuke lemon). This is a very quick and simple chutney to make. Dosakaya is not cooked, it is finely chopped and mixed into ground tempering. A spicy, tangy and very tasty pachadi.

  4. Every summer vacation in my school days I was showered with dosakaya recipes. For quite some time Secunderabad, always reminded me of dosakaya and pearls and nothing else. 🙂 Lovely chutney!

  5. We don’t get dosakaya in Kerala or Chennai (or I have not been able to identify it)…How about updating this post with a picture of it the next time you make it :D? Not just for dosakaya, for other items too which are not that common…just a suggestion! Anyway, very beautiful pictures and I loved the chutney/pachadi even more because of the ease of making it!
