Tamarind is commonly used in Telangana cuisine. It is used in chutneys, stuffed gravies, charu varieties, pulusu varieties etc. Pulusu is a thick stew made with tamarind extract, jaggery or sugar, chilli powder and other spices. It is sour/tangy, sweet, hot and goes well with both rotis and white rice. Sesame seeds/peanuts find a special place in this cuisine and pulusu is no exception. This pacchi pulusu is a little different from the regular pulusu varieties. Pacchi in Telugu means raw. This dish doesn't need any kind of boiling or simmering and hence the name. Made in Telangana region, this is a great accompaniment to hot rice and plain dal. This is one of those dishes that is found in every household on every season.
