The Coriander Pachidi is a truly chatpata accompaniment with a salsa-like mouth-feel. The peppy taste of coriander generally pleases every one.

Here, Coriander Pachidi shines even better with the support of pungent garlic and tangy tamarind. A good dose of green chillies brings the chutney a level of spice that makes you drool. You can, however, reduce the number of chillies if you want it less spicy.

This Coriander Pachidi has a nice texture, with something to kind of bite into, like the roasted dals, garlic etc. It is a wonderful accompaniment for all kinds of tiffin, be it idlis, dosa or upma.

It can also be served with rice preparations that have a soft flavour like Dal Khichdi , Coconut Rice or Lemon Rice. The spicy chutney complements mild flavours very well indeed.
