I am a big fan of home-made pickles and chutneys.When I mom makes curries which I dont eat then I use to ask her to make any pacchadi with which I can have my entire meal.Recently I saw this recipe in a cooking show 'Maa Oori Vanta' and tried Arati Thokkala Pacchadi It came out very well.Till then I know that we can make chutney with the skin of the veggies(Beerakaya,Aratikaya) but never tried it before.Made it today for our lunch.Waiting for my hubby to taste and comment on it.
