Karivepaku Pachadi | Curry Leaves Chutney

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.

Today's special is made from tender curry leaves and can stay at room temperature for atleast 3 days, more than a week when refrigerated. 

This is part of the Cooking from Cookbook Challenge.

Wash the leaves and drain it well . Heat a kadai with oil, saute the chopped onions and chopped green chilies well and remove, then add the tomatoes. Cook till the tomatoes are cooked well. Remove and add the curry leaves. Saute well.

My mom does not add onion and tomato to curry leaf chutney. Your version sounds delicious. Will try your version if I find tender curry leaves in the market.
