imageMamidi allam pachadi

Mamidi allam/Mango ginger rhizome sounds interesting, because it has got the flavour of mango and the taste of ginger. It looks like ginger rhizome but the colour is slightly lighter than normal ginger. Mango ginger is quite refreshing, crunchy and juicy with its tantalizing aroma. Chutney is prepared with mango ginger like any other chutneys. The chutney is very delicious when served with hot steamed rice topped with melted ghee. Here I present spicy and tangy mamidi allam pachadi to relish. Njoy Cooking, Serving n Savoring!
