Kovakkai Chutney recipe, with video, a chutney with tindora pairs well with rice and with idli and dosa too.
A few days back when i was invited for lunch by my friend she made a wonderful platter of Andra Meals. She is a very talented cook and i have learnt a lot of cookery tips from her. In that menu there was a yummy thogaiyal and when she told it was made from tindora| kovakkai i  was so surprised and i took the recipe from her and tried kovakkai chutney today. Hurray! i got the exact taste.

Jeyashree,
I don't see when to add garlic and is that ok to add raw onion and garlic ? (paachai vasanai?)

Jeyashree,
I am your big fan! Tasted your mom's cooking and Mythili's when I visited India last time.Will meet you next time!!
When to add Garlic and wondering if we add raw onion I thought it would give paachai vasanai.

Thank you so much. I added garlic while roasting, but onions are added raw. It will taste very nice. No pachai vasanai

jeyashri suresh September 21, 2016 - 3:14 am

It's big onion vidhya, not chinna vengayam and it has to be added raw

Don’t we need to sauté the onions before adding to the ground kovakkai paste

Reply

No need to saute the onions, the taste will be great.
