Vellari /Cucumber Pachadi


 That is when this Onam went by that I  noticed I haven't posted any lunchtime recipes till now in my blog. So lemme start with an easy and delicious side dish that I think almost all of us love to have with our lunchtime rice. Vellari is known as cucumber or common cucumber in english; but this is not the usual cucumber which we use for salads. This one is fattier in size and has got many medicinal values. This is not eaten raw, but cooked.Check this site for the picture and to know the medicinal values of this vegetable.


Ingredients:

Vellari 1 cup
Coconut 1/2 cup
Yoghurt 1/2 cup
Cumin seeds 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds 1 tsp
Curry leaves
Dried red chillies 2
Green chillies 1
Coconut Oil 2 tbsp


Method:

Boil cucumbers till it turns soft. Grind coconut along with curd,1/2 tsp mustard, green chillies and cumin seeds. Mix  this paste in the cooked vegetable. Give it a stir till it comes to the boiling point.Heat oil in another pan, splutter 1/2 tsp mustard; then add curry leaves and dried red chilly to it. Pour this tadka into the vegetable. Delicious Vellari Pachadi is all set to go with your lunch.
