Vellarikka Pachadi Recipe

A side dish from Kerala made from cucumber. A simple Kerala style cucumber pachadi or curry or gravy in coconut-yogurt sauce with the subtle flavors of mustard seeds. A popular onam-sadya recipe that pairs well with rice. achadi and kichadi are an integral part of the Kerala cuisine, especially the onam-sadya menu. But let’s not confuse pachadi with the Tamil Nadu style pachadi, which is more like raita and the kichadi with the North Indian rice and lentil dish khichadi or the upma khichadi.
