Urad Dal Chutney (Minapa Pachadi)

This is another simple but great tasting pachadi recipe that we usually make at home. 

  • ½ cup Urad Dal (మినప్పప్పు)
  • 5 or 6 dry Red Chilies (can be adjusted more or less) (can be replaced with green chilies)
  • A pinch of Asafetida (Hing, ఇంగువ)
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • A small piece of Tamarind (about the size of a Cranberry)
  • Salt
For Tempering: (Optional)
  • 1 tsp Oil
  • ½ tsp Mustard Seeds
  • ¼ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • Few Curry Leaves

Heat oil in a pan and add urad dal. Sauté until the dal turns light brown in color. Then transfer to a plate to cool. 

In the same pan add red chilies and sauté well. Keep aside.

When the dal becomes cool, combine it with red chilies + tamarind + asafetida + salt and grind into a soft paste by adding little amount of water. 

Transfer to a bowl and keep aside.

Now it’s time to do tempering. Heat oil in pan and add mustard seeds. When they pop add cumin seeds + curry leaves and sauté well.

Pour this on top of the prepared pachadi, stir well and enjoy the great tasting pachadi with steaming hot rice and a dollop of ghee. Yummy!!
