Beetroot Pachadi Recipe | Beetroot Yogurt Gravy Recipe - Kerala Style

Pachadi refers to a traditional South Indian side-dish. In Kerala and Tamilnadu, pachadi is a side-dish curry similar to the north Indian Raita. There are different varieties of pachadis that could be part of the menu in Sadya (Grand feast). 

Beetroot Pachadi is usually served on the occasion of Onam, Vishu, and on Sadya. This pachadi is made with cooked beetroot & plain yogurt and has a bit sweet taste.

I know that beet roots are not the favorite food for many of us. I was one among them, until I tasted this recipe. I am not a great fan of beetroots but really like the rich and vibrant color that this vegetable lends to a dish.
