Carrot Chutney

Carrot Chutney

Andhra House hold cusine is famous for their innumerable pachadis. Each house hold has their signature pachadi. The combination of spices that is used with each vegetable, gives a unique finger licking taste.

The sweetness of carrot and the spices compliments each other to get a refreshing unique falvor.

I love this pachadi with a little curd which makes it carrot perugu pachadi (carrot yogurt chutney) and my DH loves it by itself. So, I satisfied him with his version yet having my own (with little yogurt) at the same time.

This Carrot pachadi is simple, colorful, healthy and tasty with a pleasant blend of flavors and a great accompaniment with hot rice and ghee.
