Spinach Chutney (Palakoora Pachadi)

Spinach Chutney (Palakoora Pachadi)


  • 1 cup chopped Spinach (పాలకూర)
  • 1 tbsp Coriander Seeds (ధనియాలు)
  • 4 or 5 dry Red Chilies (can be replaced with green Chilies)
  • Tamarind (gooseberry sized)
  • ½ tsp Cumin Seeds
  • A handful of Cilantro (optional)
  • A pinch of Asafetida (ఇంగువ, Hing)
  • 2 tsp Oil
  • Salt

  1. Soak tamarind in very little amount of water and keep aside.
  2. Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds + coriander seeds + red chilies, sauté well. Remove from the pan and transfer to a plate. 
  3. Add spinach to the same pan and sauté until spinach becomes soft. Remove and transfer to the plate. Keep aside to cool.
  4. When all the ingredients cool down, grind them to a smooth paste by adding the soaked tamarind + cilantro + hing and salt as needed. Add very little water if needed. 
  5. That’s all! Great tasting spinach pachadi is ready to be eaten. This pachadi goes well with rice.
