Print Friendly and PDF
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. Yesterday dal, pachadi ,rasam & tindora fry was our lunch. It was yummy .Thank you amma😍. This pachadi can be stored for 3-4 days when refrigerated. Lets see Puli Milagai preparation below.

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 you are making for kids , just slit the chillies , cook and remove while eating..
  • Please add more hing as it gives the flavour for this dish.
