PACHAIMILAGAI PODI (GREEN CHILLI POWDER)


This is a traditional sticky powder, used as a pickle, done during "shraddham" days.

INGREDIENTS:

Green chilli (long) - 2 or 3
Coconut scraped - 3/4 cup
Salt - to taste
Lime - 1/2
Mustard seeds - for tempering
Oil - 1/2 tsp.

METHOD:

Scrap coconut. Roughly chop green chillies. Grind green chillies and coconut alongwith salt to a coarse powder.(DO NOT ADD WATER). Transfer to a bowl, squeeze half a lime and temper with mustard seeds.

This goes well with curd rice. Stays good for 2 or 3 days when refrigerated.


This will be very hot and squeezing the lime juice balances it.

NOTE: GENERALLY, THE FOOD COOKED ON SHRADDHAM DAYS ARE NOT PRESERVED FOR THE NEXT DAY. IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE USED ON THE SAME DAY.  HOWEVER, WE CAN MAKE  IT ON OTHER DAYS AND REFRIGERATE IT AND USE FOR  2 OR 3 DAYS.

  18. In general for shraddam coconuts are not used. any way it is a type of thokayal or chutney and it can be used for idli and dosas.

  19. Regarding shraddam, what we use or not is based on the particular family's pazhakka vazhakkam.. For ex: Even in vegetables, some use ladysfinger and some don't use it. However, I have seen elders in my side as well as my husband's side, all use coconuts in devasa thaligai.By the by, you can mention your name instead of giving anonymous comments, so that I can clarify things which I don't know, from you.
