Cucumber Pachadi

This Pachadi is similar to a raita but is cooked in a coconut-yogurt gravy. On Vishu, we keep the Vellarikai (the bigger variety also known as Dosakkai) in the Vishu Kani and we also use it to make pachadi for the Sadhya.

  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1/2 cup coconut
  • 1 red chilly
  • 3 green chilies
  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
  • 1 cup curd or yogurt.
  1. Peel the skin of the cucumber and cut it finely into small pieces.
  2. Grind the coconut, cumin seeds and green chillies in a mixer.
  3. Heat oil in a pan and add the mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds start crackling, add the red chilly and the curry leaves.
  4. Then add the ground paste, cucumber and salt. mix well and simmer for a few min.
  5. Switch off and when the mixture cools down a little, add the beaten curd/ yogurt and mix well and serve.
