Tindora thovayal / pachadi is a tangy and spicy recipe hence it can be used as side accompany or can be mixed with hot rice. Pachadi is more easy to make and tastes delicious more than vepudu/ fry / poriyal. I prepare it either when I am not in mood to make poriyal or when I have less time to cook so i can eat it with rice. So if u get trapped in any such situation try making this recipe! So lets grind it!
- Sliced Tindora – 1 cup
- Small onion – 1
- Grated coconut – ¼ cup
- Garlic – 2
- Dried red chili – 2
- Tamarind gooseberry size
- Slice tindoras and chop onions.
