Banana Thair Pachadi/ Banana Raita

Yes! I know it is bananas that is used in the preparation. No! Please don't say YUK! IOOOOOOOOOO! THuu! Makes me want to throw up! because that is what most  people expressed when I mentioned that I was going to make this pachadi. But, let me tell you it was very tasty that it almost surprised me a little. It was so delicious that it was gone before I could help myself to some pacahdi. A very simple recipe that I adopted from Swami Dhayanandha's Ashram recipe book. The trick is you have to use a banana that is neither ripe or raw. The kind of banana that is lightly green in the top(please refer to the photo below). So all of you who are thinking Naa - AaH please give it a try.

  2. Simple recipe with an awesome taste.I usually eat Yogurt rice(Thayir Saatham) with mashed banana. This sweet and spice taste is something that I am going to give a try. I also like the fruit salad with the icecream in your profile picture. I can truly live on fruits alone with craving for anything else for quite sometime.

  3. This is a nice idea.............must try
