Thayir (Curd Pachadi)

Another must have sadya dish. A sadya always have this and inji puli  alongside chips, veggies and other  accompaniments. I love this khicadi and it can be mixed with rice and eaten all by itself too. Many a times I team this up with Mazhikuvarti and papadams and we have a hearty lunch.

Other variations instead of tomatoes are vendakai.(Ladies Fingers)

Hi This is my chance to introduce myself. I am Parvathi, the author/owner of this space. I blog here about recipes that are simple yet tasty. I try to improvise on recipes without compromising on taste. Cooking is my passion. Though I am not very perfect, I love the imperfections and as they say “there’s always scope of better”. I like to follow that. I believe there’s a story for each recipe and the way it is developed. Also creativity is the secret ingredient of cooking. My inspiration for cooking comes from my mom. As cliched as it sounds, for me she is the best cook. 🙂 Cooking for me is a stress buster. Hoping this space help you too whip some amazing dishes and earn praises from your loved ones.
