My Recipe Notes on Beetroot Pachadi:

1. Serve Beetroot Pachadi as a side dish with any kind of steamed rice.
2. While adding yogurt, make sure that it doesn`t get boiled.
3. Since we do not get small onions here, I have used the big one, what we call back home as Savala.
4. Use a grater with big holes to grate beetroot, otherwise it will get mushy.
5. If your hands get stained while grating beetroot, clean off with some lemon juice.

Serve Beetroot Pachadi with Rice.

    Both dishes look aemwose..Fantastic pictures..Beet root kichadi is my all-time fav..As far as I know, pachadi is a sweet dish. In our place, we add crushed mustard seeds to the pachadi whereas for kichadi we do not add that. We just add the ground coconut-cumin mixture(which is optional for kichadi), yoghurt and do the tadka with mustards. Also, for kichadi, we fry the veggies but for pachadi we cook them adding water, salt etc. Hope this helps :)
