Curd Gravy with Vegetables (Thayir Pachadi)

Thayir Pachadi is one of the most important and simple dishes served at any Kerala or Tamil Nadu feast. Pachadi is typically made with vegetables such as cucumber or ladysfinger. However, this dish can be made without vegetables, using only ground coconut paste and yogurt. This goes well with Sambar rice and Rasam rice and makes an excellent dip for Vada.
