Hi Prasu, I also love pachi pulusu..sadly we get only tamarind paste here, so I do not make it as it gives a different flavor :(...

Quite a different way of doing things. I could almost feel the heat of the pepper on my hands when you wrote about roasting the chilis and crushing them with you hands. Love all these fascinating ways we have made simple delicacies for ages. Thanks for sharing.
