Andhra Dosakaya Pachadi Recipe

My state, Andhra Pradesh is popular for its chutneys; pachadi in local parlance. They are made to be eaten with hot steamed rice doused with ghee. Or even with fritters, idli or dosa. The pachadi I am sharing today is Andhra Dosakaya Pachadi Recipe.

What is a Dosakaya in Andhra Dosakaya Pachadi Recipe

Dosakaya is a small yellow cucumber that is a member of the Cucurbitaceae family along with melons, squash, and gourds. These cucumbers are exceptionally versatile and can be used for pickle or salad. They are sometimes round and oblong in shape. The soft cream to white flesh is firm, watery, and crunchy. It also has a slight, sweet fragrance that is resonant of melon. I have been eating them in salads and as Pachadi since I was a kid. They are low cal, high dietary fibre, contains vitamins C, E, and K, potassium. It cleans toxins from your gut and is an annual veggie available through the year.

 Andhra Pradesh, notorious for its rich ingestion of extremely spicy food ; Dosakaya Pachadi is just that, spicy!
