About Roti Pacchadi with sour greens in Telangana Cuisine

Rolu(noun) is Telugu word for stone mortar and pacchadi is chutney. Roti(Telugu pronoun of rolu) pacchadi translates to a chutney made in such stone mortar. This gives a wonderful texture to the chutneys. If one doesn't have such mortar, a mixie can be used. Sour greens like chukka koora (Khatta palak), gongura (Ambada), chinta chiguru(tender tamarind leaves) are made into chutneys along with few spices. This is something which can be made very easily and the process remains the same for all such sour greens. As mentioned earlier, sourness and hot spice go hand in hand. Hence, green chillies are used in these chutneys. Also, when ripe red chillies(pandu mirapakaya) are available in the season, these replace the regular green chillies. These chutneys go very well with both jonna rottelu and rice. Again, a nice helping of ghee or white butter creates a magic. The image posted is that of Gongura(Ambada) chutney.

  6. Turn off the flame and let it cool.
  7. In a mixie jar, add these greens and sea salt.
  8. Pulse it. Add turmeric powder, roasted sesame seeds/peanuts powder and make it into a coarse or smooth paste.
