Pachadi is a traditional Kerala dish usually served as a side dish for meals. It is generally made using a vegetable or a fruit. However, usually fruits are used to make it; for instance, pineapple pachadi is a good choice. It is a simple dish and can be done in a short span of time. The recipe forms an integral part of Onam sadhya. Much similar to raita, this wonderful dish falls midway between a sauce and a relish. You may get confused about the difference between pachadi and kichadi. The difference is, pachadi is sweet and the kichadi is not sweet. There are many variations of this dish; it is made from cucumber, beetroot, pineapple and the like. Pineapple pachadi, also known as Mathura curry (sweet curry), is quite popular and is generally served in wedding feasts. This dish is much sweeter or rather it is an awesome combo of flavors including spicy, sweet and tangy. If you are a lover of sweet and sour taste, you must definitely try this pachadi. This exotic and delicious recipe should be tried by all food lovers. Friends, try this pineapple pachadi and let me know your comments!

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 the 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.
