  • Beetroot – 1 med. size (approx. 1 cup)
  • Yogurt/Curd- 1 cup (some less or more as your personal choice.)
  • Green chili- 2
  • Chopped fresh coriander- 2 tbsp
  • Roasted peanuts- ¼ cup (or more as your like)
  • Sugar- 1 pinch (optional)
  • Salt to taste

  • Wash, peel and grate the beetroot. Cut chilies into enough small pieces that you can remove later. Finely chop coriander. Peel & crush roasted peanuts coarsely. Bit the curd.
  • Combine grated beetroot, chillies, coriander, peanut crush, curd, sugar & salt in a bowl. Mix well. Pachedi is ready. Serve with any type of pulao/birayani.
  • You may make pachedi as same method with carrot, radish & cucumber individually. 
  • But remember one thing …. when you are going to use cucumber. Don’t grate it, it discharge water, because of that ruined the dish. Cut cucumber into very small pieces.
