Pachadi is a traditional dish prepared in kerala during Onam/Vishu or any other festive occasions as one of the dishes in sadya.

This is a very different way of making pachadi with the flavour of shallots which are not included in the traditional way of making pachadi. However this is very tasty and once prepared we surely will prepare many times since the taste is so delicious.

Apart from usual preparation, we are not adding crushed mustard also in this special pachadi.
