Tasty Homemade Andhra Pickles in Chennai

Lakshmi is a resident of Nandanam and is she is well-known for the traditional Andhra style pickles she makes and sells.

She says her business started in March 2010. “I was looking for Andhra pickles for my mother but I found all the pickles had preservatives and lacked the traditional taste in them, so decided to make the pickle on my own, ” she says. Her friends also encouraged her once they found out that they were good.

She employs people in Guntur – her native town in Andhra Pradesh – to prepare the pickles. “My uncle takes care of
the preparation process there,” said Lakshmi. She also said that no preservatives other than turmeric are added to the pickles she sells.

These homemade pickles are available throughout the year except during the November and December months (monsoon
time in Andhra ).

She also undertakes door delivery in areas like Alwarpet, Mylapore, Mandavelli, Nandanam, T. Nagar , Mambalam and
Saidapet.

Door no.7 , N Block no: 7, 5th Street, Lotus Colony, Nandanam, Chennai – 600035.

Phone: (044) 6457 2233, 6457 6677. Cell: 9444183140

  1. After a long time me and my family have tasted genuine and authentic Andhra pickles and spice powders for sambar and rasam. Compared to this, all that we used to buy off the shelf including big brands till now feels like we have been eating chemicals. Pickle and spice making is a tradition. Even Ayurveda talks of the health benefits of this process and the importance pure ingredients, spices etc. Her House of Andhra Pickles as it is called, is well known in our area. Best wishes to Ms. Lakshmi Prasanna for keeping both age old tradition and authentic taste alive.
