Also fondly known as Allam Pachhadi in Telugu, Ginger Chutney is a traditional recipe from Andhra Pradesh. This recipe is quite easy to make, and does not require many ingredients. Since ginger (adrak) has an overpowering taste which can be bitter, I have used urad dal along with other spices to ensure a pleasant taste. Chana dal gives a nice volume to the chutney, contributing towards its thick consistency. Coriander seeds (sabut dhaniya) and cumin seeds (jeera) impart the chutney with a wonderful aroma. I have used tamarind pulp (imli ka ras) here to add tanginess. Ginger Chutney does not require tempering or the use of water. The x-factor of this salivating chutney is that it can be stored for 2-3 days at room temperature, and up to almost a week when kept refrigerated. This property makes it ideal to carry it for travel or to take to picnics. Ginger Chutney can be served with the classic pesarattu , idli and uttapam. Be prepared to be mind blown with this powerhouse of flavours.
