Tangy curd curry made with cucumber(Vellarikka)
Vellarikka pachadi is a simple traditional dish of Kerala. Vellarikka is also known as Malabar cucumber. It is one of the common side dishes of Kerala’s kitchen. We prepare pachadi twice in a week and serve it along with rice, fish curry, and fish fry. The taste of this combination is heavenly.
Pachadi is also one of the Kerala sadya item. Ingredients of pachadi vary with places in Kerala. I prepared this pachadi in Malabar style. You can also make this pachadi with other vegetables like ash gourd, yam or banana. I have already tried some different pachadi varieties like Beetroot pachadi, Pavakka pachadi ,Carrot pachadi and Apple pachadi. All these dishes are super easy to make and we can prepare them within 15 minutes. Please try out this pachadi and let me know how it went out for you.
