Pachadi - another variation
Published On: 19 Feb 2004
* chop tomatoes to small pieces and cook them in about 250ml of water and turmeric powder.
* grind coconut, mustard seeds, red chillies with 2 to 3 tblsp of yogurt and a little water, to a fine paste. make sure that the paste is not very watery.
* once the tomotoes are cooked, add the ground paste, remaining yogurt, salt to taste and the sugar. You may add some water to the mixture if the consistency is thick.
* when the mixture starts to boil, remove from heat.
* season with mustard seeds and curry leaves.
* serve with rice.
** you may use fresh cucumber instead of tomatoes. in that case do not cook cucumber in water and turmeric powder. make a fine paste of coconut, green chillies, mustard seeds - mix with yogurt - add the cucumber and salt. this tastes fantastic with hot puris. **
