When it comes to Andhra cuisine, the chutneys form one of the most integral part of the course. There is always some chutney or the other always on our table. We make chutneys with just about anything. Especially Athamma, is known for her capabilities of making pachadis from anything. She is back from her vacation and wasted no time in making us some of her pachadis.
