Katrikkai Pachadi ~ Eggplant Raitha

Need a super healthy, iron and calcium rich, quick to make dish? 

Look no further.Presenting Katrikkai Pachadi (Eggplant Raitha / Baingan Raitha). This is one of our family's favourite and goes great with Vangibhath or even hot rice /pulav / Most one Pot meals.. I am presenting my mom's version here. Hope you would also like it .Only important point to note is that use firm brinjals, especially one with very less seeds. 

This is an excellent side dish for Milagu Kozhambu + Rice combo (Rice with Pepper Tangy curry).

  16. I learnt how to make eggplant raita from my sister in law. Love this side dish which goes so well with biryanis, pulaos and also to enjoy on its own especially during summer.
