Chinta Chiguru Pachadi: Sour chutney made with tender tamarind leaves which are seasonal. A perfect delight in summer

Summer is the most welcoming season for all the food lovers in Andhra. The reasons being pickles, vathals, and tender tamarind leaves dearly called as chinta chiguru in Telugu. It is very sour in taste and is delicious when used in making dals, powder and chutney.

In towns and villages they are abundantly available on roadsides. When I was in Guntakal (Anantapur Dist. AP), I saw vendors selling these leaves on random measurement. They used to charge on handful quantity which was costing around 1 to 2 Rupees. In Hyderabad they used to sell on weight basis. Well then I thought that it is as valuable as gold during summers. LOL J

To prepare these leaves for cooking is bit tedious.  However the end result is worth so much of effort. While dal requires absolutely tender leaves, It’s Ok for chutney to have some big ones. They taste sour too.
