About Andhra Avakaya Pachadi Recipe

Pickle is always been integral part of Andhra cuisine. On any day you can see pickle on my plate and mango pickle is my very favorite. Hot steamed white rice, dollop of ghee, mudda pappu (utti pappu), mango pickle and papad/stir fried vegetable is what we Andhraite’s love to eat on any day and for me this is an ultimate comforting food.
