Vendakaya Pachadi or Okra/Lady’s Finger Pachadi

Pachadi is a Side dish in south India which is equivalent to ‘Raita’ in North India. Usually pachadi is made with vegetables mixed with curd and a mixture of coconut and green chilies, though there are some varieties where vegetables are cooked in tamarind pulp too. One of my all time favorites is the vendakaya pachadi or the okra/lady’s finger pachadi. The fried okra in the curd-coconut-chili mixture tastes just awesome. This is a necessary part of every feast called saddi or sadya, a full fledged festive meal served on plantain leaves.
