Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter N

Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh

Dish: Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya Pachadi (Sesame-Green Mango Chutney)

Letter N stands for veggies like Nuvvulu (sesame seeds), Nimmakaya (lemon), Nethi Beerakaya (fuzzy gourd) etc. N also stands for Neyyi or ghee which when added on hot dal and steamed rice makes it taste out of this world. 

For today, I made Nuvvulu-Mamidikaya pachadi (sesame-green mango chutney). Recipe is from my dear neighbor from India. I was raking my mom’s brain for dishes that start with ‘N’ and then she gave me this recipe that my neighbor makes back home. This is a very simple, almost no-cook except for the sauteed tempering. It tastes great with rice, upma, idli, dosa or just about anything that needs a little something-something to dip.

  1. Wow what a creamy, flavorful pachadi.I have tried a similar one with cucumber and sesame seeds before. Does this need a sweetener because of the sesame seeds or no?

  2. Simple and delicious pachadi. I love the pic and cannot wait for the raw mangoes to start appearing in the market. This one is a definite to do.
