pachi pulusu

Now this is not the gravy curry i am going to explain about. I am not sure how many of us would have heard of this but its still famous in my place and my mom use to prepare this especially in summer. We call it as pachi pulusu and in my husbands house they name it as chintha pulusu . Not sure how many synonyms it has…

This is very easy to prepare and dont even require the gas ;).

Ingredients :

  • One grated onion (cut into small pieces)
  • Three green chillies – cut them into small pieces
  • 3 glasses of water
  • Tamarind juice – 1 spoon ( i use the thick tamarind juice given by my mom. If you are soaking tamarind instantly and taking out the juice, probably u need to use more of it)
  • Jaggery – 3 spoons (crushed ones)
  • salt for taste

Take three glasses of water in a bowl and add grated onion & chillies. Add tamarind and jaggery to it. Salt for taste too. Meanwhile, prepare tadka (talimpu with jeera, mustrad seeds, curry leaves) in a pan and add to this pulusu. Keep it aside for 15min or so …such that onion pieces will soak for sumtime.

Anthey tasty pachi pulusu ready !!
