We love eating chutneys or Pachadi. They taste delicious with rice, idly, dosa, upma or khichadi.
I love making them because they are very easy and also my kid will eat without knowing what vegetables are inside it 😉 No more throwing veggies away from curry. She doesn’t what veggies I have used.
You can prepare so many different chutneys or pachadi varieties with tomatoes. This is one of them rich in Iron because of sesame seeds.

Welcome to my blog.I blog about healthy and traditional Indian food. I love cooking from scratch and occasionally semi home-made food and junk food here and there. I’ve been into cooking after completing my graduation. I have started learning from my Mom and many Television cookery shows irrespective of language. Its been hell of a curve with few ups and downs 😉 Currently I live with my family in hot Texas 🙂
