Ash Gourd Raita / Poosanikai Thayir Pachadi | Ash Gourd Recipes


We went to my perimmas house 2 weeks back and we happened to taste this raita, it happenned to the apt combination for any hot variety rice like pulioyodharai , tomato rice etc. So after returning, called her up to ask for the recipe and I prepared it to post it here :)

Notes:
  • If you prefer the crunchy taste, then no need to cook onions, add it while tempering, fry it and then add it to the cooked veggie.
  • You can even add jeera while tempering.
