VENDAKKA PACHADI| OKRA PACHADI - STEP BY STEP

VENDAKKA | OKRA  PACHADI


 Pachadi : Pachadi is an yoghurt based dish. In traditional meals of  South India this will be definitely served as an accompaniment along with the other vegetable curries. We can prepare pachadi's with   onion, tomato,carrot,beetroot, radish and henceforth you will be seeing them in my space too.

Okra pachadi is a tangy dish as they are cooked in tamarind water and finally combined with yoghurt. 

Serves : 2
Preparation time : 10 mins
Cooking time : 20 mins.

For this recipe you need

5 - 6 fresh vendakka | okra, washed and chopped 
1 medium sized onion, finely chopped
1 medium sized tomato, finely chopped
3 tbsp. of diluted tamarind extract
2 tbsp .of yoghurt
1 tsp. of mustard and urad dal seeds
Few curry leaves
2 red chillies
Salt
Oil

Preparation


Heat oil in a heavy bottomed pan, add the mustard seeds. When they pop, add the urad dal, chillies and curry leaves, fry for a minute. Add the onion and fry until soft.



Add tomatoes and okra, fry for a couple of minutes.



Add tamarind water , cover and cook until the okra is tender. Season with salt and remove from the heat.


Finally add yoghurt and mix it well. 


Vendakka pachadi is ready to be served................


Serve this vendakka pachadi with plain rice and enjoy :)

Note:

  • Generally pachadi's are prepared in less quantity , and not like the vegetable curries that we prepare for rice. So for the above specifications you will get a small bowl as shown in the picture above.
  • No Spice powder is required for this dish.
  • When adding yoghurt , make sure that the curry is not too hot.
