Cucumber Thayir Pachadi, cucumber cooked with coconut and curd, it’s a common and simple recipe.. also one of the best recipe for this summer..

This will serve in all functions along with the vegetarian meals.. this is one of my childhood favorite pachadi, but the sad thing is they people serve this with a teaspoon.. i have this pacahdi alone with rice and Pickle.. its a good combination.. Can serve this as main dish with some vegetable poriyal, thooran, also it goes well with a side dish of sambar or rasam.. and cucumber is a common vegetable & the curd which kick out the summer heat nicely, also dont miss this easy simple curry to add in your summer menu list.:) lets go with the recipe..
