Cabbage Mirapakayala Pachadi ( Cabbage & Red Chilies Pickle)

Cabbage Mirapakayala Pachadi ( Cabbage & Red Chilies Pickle)




Today's recipe if from my dear neighbour and good friend, one word to describe her cooking is "excellent", there is a phrase in Telugu which goes something like this "porugu inti pulla koora ruchi" meaning food always tastes delicious at neighbours, in my case its truly 100% correct. This pickle can be made in 2 ways one use home red chili pickle (yerra mirapakala karam) or use the store brought priya red chili pickle, let me warn you if you are not a favorite of spicy pickles then this is not for you, on the other hand if you are like me and enjoy the spiciness then this will be one of your favorites for sure. You can make this with cabbage, dondakaya (tindora fresh ones are the best), raw mangoes.This will not stay for long meaning this needs to eaten fresh or else vegetables added get soggy.

Ingredients
1 cup red chilli pickle
1 cup cabbage cut finely
Thadka

1 tbsp jeera
1 tbsp urad dal
1 tbsp mustard seeds
4-5 Red. chilies
a pinch of hing
2 tbsp oil for tempering


Process
1. mix red chili pickle and cabbage keep aside
2. in a small pan add oil when hot add all the ingredients for thadka and when mustard starts to splutter add this to cabbage mixture and mix well.

When eaten with hot rice and ghee the taste explodes in your mouth begging you for more :).

Sreelu, never knew you could do this pandumirapa pachadi. We do a chutneyfied version by adding it to curds and tempering it. You have a nice blog going!
