Andhra Dosakaya - Pachimirchi Pachadi ( Yellow Cucumber -Green Chilli Chutney)

Hi everyone !! am back with another traditional low calorie vegetable chutney "Dosakaya - Pachimirchi mukkala pachadi" (Yellow Cucumber - Green Chilli Chutney) which is especially good for weight watchers. It is very easy to make and quite healthy too as Cucumbers are rich in Vitamin C and Vitamin A and low in sodium. I love to have raw Cucumber. It's better to consume raw cucumber to get all benefits of the vegetable.



There are many variations in making this Cucumber Chutney, today I am posting raw "Cucumber - Green Chilli Chutney". This is one of the best and healthiest way to enjoy Cucumber without loosing it's nutrients. I used to make Dal, Chutney, Mukkala Pulusu and Sambhar with this Yellow Cucumber. My momma used to say this Yellow Cucumber is rich in Calcium which is good for growing children. Let us see the procedure to make this Raw Chutney :)



Ingredients :
1 medium sized hard and raw Cucumber
6-9 green chillies (can adjust according to your spice levels)
salt to taste
Lemon sized Tamarind ( Soak in water for few minuites)
1/2 cup finely chopped fresh Coriander leaves


For Seasoning :
1 1/4 table spoon Oil
1 spoon Chana dal
1 spoon Urad dal
1/4 spoon mustard seeds
1/4 spoon Cumin seeds
1-2 dry red chillies, broken
a big pinch of asafoetida/ hing/ inguva


Procedure :
1. Wash yellow cucumber and peel off the skin.
2. Cut into 2 big pieces. Remove the seeds and check the cucumber is 
    bitter or not.
3. Chop half piece of the cucumber into small fine pieces and keep aside
4. Chop second half into big pieces.
5. Take a mixie jar, add big sized cucumber pieces, green chillies, salt, 
     turmeric powder, few coriander leaves, soaked tamarind pulp and 
     grind it into coarse paste. Transfer this coarse paste to a serving bowl.
6. Now add remaining finely chopped Cucumber pieces to the coarse
    paste and mix well.
7. Heat a small pan with oil, add chana dal, urad dal, fry them for few 
    seconds until they turn golden colour. Then add mustard, cumin seeds,
    broken red chillies, fry for 1 minuite, then add spring of curry leaves, 
    pinch of asafoetida.
8. Pour this seasoning over chutney and garnish with finely chopped fresh
    coriander leaves.
9. Serve this with hot steamed rice and ghee.
