Black Sesame Seeds Pachadi /Ellu pachadi - BM#4

Its Day 6 of the first Marathon I am running and its quite exciting. The recipe for today is Ellu pachadi/ Balack sesame seeds pachadi. The taste of this pachadi is tangy & spicy. It is best the combo when had with moong dal sambhar. It is usually a main dish on Duvadesi when the fast is broken after Vaikunta Ekadesi. Very simple to make , it does not call for any special ingredients. I love this pachadi, that too when had after a day of fast. Ingredients:

  • Black sesame seeds - 1/2 cup

  • Tamarind juice - 1/2 cup

  • Onions - 1/2 cut into small pieces

  • Green chillies - 2 cut into small pieces

  • Salt to taste

  • Tempering - oil & mustard seeds

  • Fry the back sesame seeds till you get the lovely aroma

  • Let it cool

  • Grind it to a smooth paste in a blender

  • In a non stick pan add oil for tempering

  • When the oil is hot add the mustard seeds and curry leaves

  • Add the green chillies and onions.

  • Saute for 3 minutes

  • To this add the tamarind pulp

  • When it begind to boil add the black sesame seeds paste

  • Adjust salt and keep stirring till it comes to a pachadi consistency

  • Serve it with hot sambhar sadham
Guess I am a little early today to peep into my fellow marathoners kitchen

I don't make sesame seed pachadi but add some sesame powder to most of my chutneys. Will try this very soon.

Hey, that is a very different prep than what I am used to. Usually, we grind everything together, I will surely give this method a try :)
