Kichadi is a curd based vegetarian dish usually served as a side dish for rice. It is healthy, delicious and easy to prepare. You can use vegetables like cucumber (വെള്ളരിയ്ക്ക), ash gourd (കുമ്പളങ്ങ), bitter gourd (പാവക്ക), papaya etc. to prepare kichadi. Here is the method of preparation.

  • Cucumber (Yellow cucumber / വെള്ളരിയ്ക്ക) – 2 Cups (Chopped)
  • Grated coconut (തേങ്ങ ചിരണ്ടിയത്) – 1 Cup
  • Curd / Yogurt (തൈര്) – 1 Cup
  • Green chilli (പച്ചമുളക്) – 3 Nos
  • Curry leaves (കറിവേപ്പില) – 1 Sprig
  • Mustard seeds (കടുക്) – 1½ Tea Spoon
  • Coconut Oil (വെളിച്ചെണ്ണ) – ½ Table Spoon
  • Salt (ഉപ്പ്) – to taste

Method

  1. Cut the cucumber and green chillies into small pieces.
  2. Grind together the grated coconut, 1 tea spoon of mustard seeds and ½ cup of curd.
  3. Cook the cucumber in a covered vessel by adding green chillies, salt and 1 cup of water. (medium heat)
  4. Turn off the heat when it is cooked well. Add the ground mix and remaining ½ cup of curd. Combine well.
  5. Heat ½ table spoon of coconut oil in a cooking pan and put ½ tea spoon of mustard seeds. When it splutters, reduce the heat and put curry leaves (1 sprig). Stir it for few seconds and add this to the prepared kichadi.
  6. Transfer to the serving dish.

Tips

If you are using bitter gourd (പാവക്ക) to prepare kichadi, fry it in oil instead of cooking it by adding water.

Myself, Shaan Geo basically a Software Engineer started my career in IT Industry. I have had a passion for food and cooking from an early age. This habit made me keep an eye out for the new variants of food and the different cuisines where ever I go. According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.

It’s a nice dish.

Tried this recipe last Friday. Turned out very tasty. Thanks a lot chef!

I have tried this, its so nice.

Hi Shan, you’re a genius. All your recipes are delicious without being complicated. Keep going, all power to you! Just one small suggestion. I was under the impression that kichadi is something like upma. What you have described here is probably a pachadi or raitha. Or maybe in Kerala its called kichadi. I don’t know. Please check and make the correction, if necessary. Cheers :)

    George, Thanks a lot for such a wonderful feedback. It is called Kichadi in Kerala. This is one of the traditional veg side dish which is served along with rice in Kerala. Thanks.
