i learned this recipe from my mom, even though i am not huge fan of allam chutney recipe. my mother, she is big fan of telugu cuisine and she got the taste to it during her brief stay in guntur, andhra pradesh. even after she moved back to udupi, she frequently prepares allam pachadi recipe and serves it with idli. however i always disliked the strong ginger taste from it and i use to fall back to my favourite coconut chutney. but these days, i have started to like the ginger chutney recipe especially when served with pesarttu dosa and upma. i should admit it the combination of these 3 are amazing.

while the preparation of ginger chutney recipe is extremely simple, few tips and considerations for a perfect one. firstly, adding 7-9 red chilies may sound a lot of spiciness. but with the combination of tamarind and jaggery the spice level decreases and neutralizes. secondly, i have not added onions to this chutney, but even sautéed onions are added while grounding. lastly, the chutney should survive for about 2-3 days in room temperature. however it can be further extended by storing in a air tight container in refrigerator.

finally, i would like to highlight my other chutney recipes collection with this post. this mainly includes, hotel style chutney, tamarind chutney, tomato thokku, pudina chutney, tomato chutney, potlakaya chutney and garlic chutney. in addition do visit my other recipes collection from my blog like,
