This article traces the roots of tasty dishes from Andhra Pradesh and gives insights into why Andhra food is SO SPICY. 🥵 It features eight popular Andhra dishes. Find out which dishes are our favorites and how to make them. As a caveat, you may know our seasoning kits are based on yummy food from Andhra Pradesh but they are not too SPICY. 

Some of our favorite dishes below highlighted in the article are:

#1. Andhra Chicken Curry:

Make this tasty dish with our Grandma's Spicy Chicken Curry Seasoning Kit. Use Asian chilli peppers for a more SPICY experience instead of jalapenos.

Make an easy variation of this dish with my Grandma's Spicy Chicken Curry Seasoning Kit. Pair it with Chicken Curry (use another packet of Grandma's Spicy Chicken Curry Seasoning Kit to make the curry) for an AMAZING culinary experience. Click on link below to access the recipe on our website. 


#7. Pulihora

#8. Bagara Baingan:

As you may know our seasonings ARE based on my parents’ home cooking from Andhra Pradesh, which are very tasty 😋 and spicy 🥵 HOT.

HOWEVER, when developing each of our seasoning blends, we go through an intense 3-4 month period of R&D to customize:

  • Spicy heat in each blend with fresh ingredients added.
  • Localize the spice flavors with familiar western ingredients.

We love this yummy process to ensure that practically 99% of people who try these flavors enjoy them. 😊 It's a lofty goal but the final recipe and seasonings are worth the wait as we cook with love ❤️ and love sharing the joy of our home cooking. 🧑‍🍳 💞🏡
