Beerakaya Kothamira Pachadi

Beerakaya Kothamira Pachadi | Ridge Gourd Coriander Chutney

Beerakaya Kothamira Pachadi is a simple and easy chutney which you can prepare within 15-20 minutes and the taste of this pachadi is so delicious especially with hot steamed rice. This chutney tastes good even with Dosa/Idli. I like pachadis and pickles very much, so there must be at least 1chutney or pickle for me to have along with rice. Rarely, I buy pickles from the store otherwise I prepare by myself.
