Onion Pachadi/ Chutney

Blogging Marathon# 32: Letter O

Theme: A-Z Dishes from Andhra Pradesh

Dish: O for Onion Pachadi (Chutney)/ Ullipaya Pachadi

Letter O literally threw a curve ball at me. I couldn't think of a single ingredient or dish that starts with O. I had Ooragaya (pickle) written down in my list, but had no intentions of making any because I had so many pickles that had to be used up and I didn't want to make anything new.

Finally after contemplating on what to make, I ended with Onion Pachadi/ Ullipaya Pachadi (chutney) from the cookbook 'Cooking with Pedatha'. This is the first letter in the series that I had to use an English word :-(

This chutney is super tasty, tangy and spicy. It goes well with just about anything, steamed rice, idli, dosa, upma etc.
