"Allam" in Telugu means Ginger and "Pachadi" means Pickle. Recipe source is my close friend, whose roots are from Andhra.
This ginger pickle can be used as an accompaniment for all kinds of dosas and chapathis. And, needless to say, it tastes  yummilicious  with curd rice. 

Ginger, washed and chopped - 3/4 cup
Jaggery - 3/4 cup
Tamarind paste - 1 1/2 tbsps (or thick juice extracted from a big gooseberry sized tamarind)
Chilli powder - 2 tsps
Garlic - 1 pod
Dry roasted methi seeds - 1 tsp
Salt to taste

To Season
Gingely oil - 3 tbsps
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Broken red chillies - 2-3
