Vellarikka Kichadi / Pachadi (Cucumber in Coconut n Yogurt Gravy)

Kichadi/Pachadi is one of the side dishes in traditional Kerala sadya (feast). There are different varieties of kichadies made with different vegetables. In our part of the world we call this kichadi. In some other parts of Kerala this curry is called pachadi. Pachadi and kichadi have 'totally' different definitions in some other regional cuisines of India. It's all very confusing and I don't want to go into any details! Traditionally cucumber with yellow-orange skin is used for this curry.
Recipe courtesy: Shn's Mishmash I didn't grind mustards seeds with coconut, so mine should be kichadi as per the definition in the blog.

Dear Anonymous,

This blog is intented as a blogroll and not a recipe blog. I have listed 800+ blogs and please follow any of those blogs for recipes. Feel free to search those blogs using the seach engine provided here, if you find that useful.

I like cooking different dishes for my family (anyway I have to cook, why not make it exciting by trying different dishes!!!). I'm putting a picture of it just as a hobby. Also I keep a link to the recipes that I tried, for my own personal use, so that I don't have to search for it in future (kind of like an e-diary - just trying to make life easy). I'm not recommending or supporting any blogs or recipes.

Sorry about that!!!
