When I saw Sapana’s Cucumber raita it reminded me of the
Vellarikai Inji Pachadi we make at home – its a sellout success everytime, as we team it
up with Upma, Pongal, Set Dosa, Vangibhath, BisibeleBhath or even Chinna Vengaya Kuzhambu (Pearl Onion Tamarind Gravy) . Earthy, rustic and
homely – that’s how I would describe this dish. The pics dont do justice to the
dish as it was clicked just before dinner in front of a hungry
family (you know how it goes from there on….But I shall update the pics soon)..
In the meantime, this dish goes to BM # 41 under bookmarked
recipes and also to my event – My health, My way – Calcium rich recipes guest
hosted by PJ. If you have any Calcium rich recipes do send it to her here – the
event ends 16th July.
