My mother used to make this Pachadi at night times in Rice and we used to love it. But I didnt eat in many years. Last Saturday I was feeling lazy to cook so suddenly it came to my mind and I searched for the recipie in net and I found this recipie in vijaya's blog and I felt very happy.
Thanks vijaya for sharing this recipie.It came out very well. I made slight changes to the recipie .Vijaya added garlic and I didn't add garlic as my mother don't use to add garlic in pachadi.
