Kothimeera Pachadi is a popular Andhra Style Chutney that has a long shelf life and can be served with any tiffin or Steamed Rice. Makes a healthy side dish.
After the Allam Pachadi I shared yesterday, this Coriander Leaves Chutney was the other dish that Amma’s friend shared. This is very much similar to the Allam pachadi, except for slight variations that surely makes a great difference.
Of course, with different ingredients it surely becomes a new dish all together. This has become our staple chutney to be stocked always as this has a good shelf life. I have another similar chutney made with Coriander leaves if you want to check on a variation.
This is for the BM#84, Week 1 on Dips, Chutneys, and Spreads.
PIN This for later!
