Pachadis are the south Indian equivalent of raita, and commonly there are two types of this accompaniment. The ones made with colocassia as the base are usually spicy, while the ones made with curds as the base are are normally bland. However, here is a unique Doodhi Pachadi, made with cooling bottle gourd and curds, perked up with myriad chat-pata ingredients like ginger, green chillies and onions too. A traditional, aromatic tempering offers the perfect finishing touch to this creative pachadi, making it a true tongue-tickler. Serve it fresh, before it becomes watery, with a full-fledged South Indian meal, or as a simple Accompaniments to Parathas or mixed rice dishes like Coconut Rice or Tomato Rice( South Indian Recipes )
