ABOUT Vankaya Pachadi RECIPE

Vankaya is Brinjal and pachadi is chutney. This is roasted brinjals mashed along with ripe red chillies. Bharta baigan can be used for this. Else the purple coloured brinjals can be used too. Using the ripe red chillies along with tamarind gives a nice punch to the dish. This is again from rural Telangana and AP regions. Ripe red chillies can be replaced with green chillies or red chilli powder.
