kobbari pachadi

Coconut pachadi is a very simple recipe that you can hardly complete it in minutes if everything is ready.Its preparation involves red and green chillis,mustard seeds,cumin,urad dal,tamarind,curry leaves and fresh coconut.The pachadi should be coarsely ground and not into a smooth paste. You should be able to bite the toasted bits of the spices and dals which gives a nice mouth-feel. Of course, not to mention the magic touch of curry leaves-mustard seeds seasoning. A delicious pachadi to go with idli,dosa and rice.
