A typical Kerala Onam or Vishu sadya is incomplete without pachadi. A pachadi is nothing but a yogurt based dish made with fruits or vegetables, ground coconut, chillies and seasonings. Some of the common fruits and vegetables that we are use to make pachadi for sadya are ladies finger/okra, tomato, pineapple and beetroot.
Pineapple pachadi is one of the most popular and favorite among all the pachadi varieties. Unlike other pachadi's, pineapple pachadi is slightly on the sweeter side. There is another variation of this pachadi with the addition of grapes called madhura pachadi, which I will share later. You can serve this pachadi with rice and sambar or any kuzhmabu. Onam is coming up next week, so try this delicious pachadi for your Ona sadya.
