Karivepaku Kandi Pacchadi


This is a really tasty pacchadi that i learnt from my ma-in-law.


1/2 cup Toor dal
4-5 dry red chillies
lime-sized tamarind, soaked
1/2 tsp jeera (cumin seeds)
1tsp salt
handful of curry leaves


  • Roast the toor dal and red chillies in 2tsp ghee till dal turns golden brown
  • Stir constantly to prevent burning.
  • Take off the flame and add salt.
  • Grind after cooling until half-done
  • Add tamarind, curry leaves and water, and grind till it is smooth and fully done.
