Pachi Pulusu

During the summer time evenings,  back home in India, we used to have " Moon light dinners". Clean the terrace,sprinkle water to cool the temperature down, put a mat or a big blanket and set the dinner. All my family members sit around the dinner and enjoy watching the open sky, twinkling stars, cool breeze, lot of chatting about the day's work, and for dinner, Pachi pulusu with one big Omlette and Mango for the dessert. Simple food yet very  tasty and enjoyable. Easy to make, healthy option.
Here is the recipe...

Tamarind - lemon sized, soaked
Onions - 1 finely chopped
Green chillies - 2 finely chopped
Tomato - 1 de-seeded, finely chopped
coriander - 1 tbsp finely chopped
chilli pwd - 1/4 tsp ( optional)
Cumin powder - 1/4 tsp

Squeeze the pulp out of the tamarind, add 2/3 cups water. Add green chillies and onions and squish it a bit, so the heat from the chillies and flavour is evenly distributed and blended well.  Add the rest of the ingredients and mix it all.
