Chukka Aaku Pachadi is a chutney made with Indian Sorrel or Ambat Chukka that can be served with rice.
Chukka Aaku is also called as Ambat Chukka or Indian Sorrel. I am not sure exactly about the Indian name. However, it is slightly sour in taste and makes a wonderful greens for making chutney or pachadi.
When we recently got this, Amma also made a kura with this, which was a hit, then she decided to make this pachadi, which tasted so good with steamed rice and ghee. I had clicked a hurried one with my phone, these days it has become real hard to setup the photo shoot for an elaborate one.
Anyway you have access to these greens, you must try this version.
