Pavakkai Kichadi/Bitter guard Kichadi
If you are a bitter guard fan like me ,you will love this kichadi. It is easy to make and tastes delicious.This kichadi goes very well with rice.
To make a paste:
Grated fresh Coconut-1 cup
Green chillies-2-4 nos
Mustard seeds-1 tsp
Curry Leaves-a few
Coconut oil-3 tsp
Oil-to fry the bitter guard
Cut the bitter guard into thin round slices.Deep fry them in oil until they are light brown.Drain and set aside.
Grind the coconut,green chillies and yogurt into a smooth thick paste.
In a pan add the mustard seeds,red chillies,curry leaves and oil.When mustard seed sputters add it to the coconut paste along with the fried bitter guard .Mix well .
If the coconut paste is too thick add some more yogurt .
