WISHING YOU ALL HAPPY PONGAL 2017 ! GINGER CHUTNEY/PACHADI

" WISHING YOU ALL HAPPY PONGAL "


Chakkara Pongal/ Sweet Pongal, Rich creamy Paal(milk) Pongal with hint of salt is accompanied with Pongal Pulusu/ Kuzhumbu made with country vegetables is always regular and traditional menu on Pongal day.  This time I also made Ginger chutney/pachadi which is a spicy one and a great accompaniment for paal Pongal.  Since both the Pongal are rich and creamy, including more ginger aids in digestion as well.  The pairing recipe for paal pongal which I am sharing today is my husband's maternal grandmother way of making it on Pongal day.  She is such a wonderful person and a great cook as well.  You can also have this chutney for south Indian Delicacies like Idli, Dosa, ven Pongal etc.
