Recipe Notes

In order to save time for making a variety of Pachadis, you could keep the coconut masala handy. Whenever you are looking to make a variety of Pachadis, you can double or triple the amount of coconut paste which is common for all the pachadies and use as required.

The coconut paste should be really smooth. Add some water if the ingredients are not grinding properly.

Add the yogurt only once the curry is cooled otherwise the yogurt will separate.

This pachadi tastes best when made fresh. However you can refrigerate it for a 2-3 days and microwave before eating.
