Cucumber Pachadi

Recipe and Photo Courtesy: Priya (my friend)


Cucumber-1 large (American)
Thick yogurt- 2 cups
Water-1/4 cup
Oil -2 tsp
Mustard seeds -11/2 tsp
Urad dal -1 tsp
Green chilly- 1 (finely chopped-optional)
Asafoetida- 1 pinch
Salt- to taste


-Grate a cucumber. (Traditionally, cucumber is fine chopped and steamed.)
-In hot oil, add mustard, urad dal and asafoetida.
-When the mustard seeds start popping, pour the oil with seasoning into the cucumber.
Add green chilies, salt and curd. If too thick, add a little water.
(The cucumber will also give out some water once salted. So be a little careful!)
-Pachadis are a part of most south Indian feasts. It is also a great accompaniment with Venthiya Kozhambu :)
