  5. you have such a wonderful collection of andhra pachadis, ARuna ! I make the karivepalai thogyal slightly differently, but would love to try this with coriander seeds added..

  6. Just love this curry leaves chutney. So delicious and versatile to use. So easy and quick to prepare.

  7. V
    Curry leaves chutney sounds lipsmackingly delicious. I love the flavour of curry leaves. And this chutney is full of curry leaves flavour. I would love to try it sometime.

  8. I've just plucked a huge branch of curry leaves from my aunt's house. Tempting me to make the chutney and freeze it for later use. Never know, may be the best accompaniment to a roti or rice when fresh veggies are not available.

  9. A good way to add some curry leaves to ones diet. Though we use it in almost everything it gets removed while eating. I am loving this chutney recipe and surely making this. Bookmarked
