Yum
puli pachadi

Yesterday my parents visited me after so many months. I had a great time with them.I was craving to eat my mom’s food for long time.So I told my mom to prepare this puli pachadi which is the best accompaniment for dal rice/paruppu sadam.Some people call this as Puli milagai thokku. I also had this by mixing in plain rice adding sesame oil.It tasted like puliodharai.I have tried this  as a side dish for ven pongal too. Lovely combination it is!!...When I was pregnant my mom had made this ‘n’ number of times for me as I wanted something tangy those days Winking smile . Yesterday dal, pachadi ,rasam & tindora fry was our lunch. It was yummy .Thank u amma Smile.This pachadi can be stored for 3-4 days when refrigerated. Lets see Puli Milagai preparation below.

puli pachadi

NOTE
  • As the green chillies absorb all the tanginess, we usually eat it along with onions .So i chopped them finely and used here.
  • If u r making for kids , just slit the chillies , cook and remove while eating..
  • Please add more hing as it gives the flavour for this dish.
