Coconut pachadi.. a yummy accompaniment..taste best with flavoured rice, a mildly sour curds, with strong tempering, which makes the pachadi very aromatic. I make this very often.

Healthy. The grated coconut gives a fabulous mouth feel to this awesome coconut curd raita. Recipe has all the healthy fats which an athlete would require and even those on weight loss programs. Going to try and include this daily in my diet and much better than cucumber raita.
