Pandumirapayaka Tomato Pachadi-Ripe red chili tomato chutney

This is a spicy preparation from andhra which uses ripe red chilies usually eaten by itself or combined with tomatoes to get a spicy tangy chutney.They look like the picture below or smaller.In the USA I think we can use habanaro peppers for a replacement for the spice they offer.

Preparation time:30 minutes


3 cups Ripe Red chili cut into 1 inch pieces
2 medium tomatoes
1 tablespoons sesame paste
1/2 teaspoon tamarind paste
1 teaspoon methi powder
1 teaspoon chana dal
