It's been quite a while since I posted something on the blog. No particular reason this time, it's just lack of interest. But after the break I feel good and hoping to be regular hereafter. Since Vishu is coming up next week, I thought I will start with a Vishu sadya special recipe.
A pachadi/kichadi is nothing but a yogurt based dish made with fruits or vegetables, ground coconut, chillies, mustard seeds 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.
Today's recipe is kichadi with bittergourd or pavakka. The yogurt and seasonings help in reducing the bitterness of the gourd. If you are planning to make a full-fledged sadya, try this pavakka pachadi for a change. Also check out other pachadi and kichadi sadya recipes.
Notes and Tips
- Add green chillies according to spice preference,
- You can adjust the yogurt and make the consistency as you like.
