Thanjavur Style Dangar Pachadi | Urad Dal Raita Recipe | Traditional Recipe from Tanjore

Hi Supermoms,

Have you heard about this pachadi ? 

Dangar Pachadi is a traditional pachadi recipe that is native to the Tanjore/Thanjavur district of Tamil Nadu. Though there is a Dangar in Chettinadu cuisine too ( shall share that recipe soon).  This is a heirloom recipe and  I make this pachadi when I do not have any fresh vegetables at home. Today was one such day and I had made this as a side dish to Milagu Biryani . 

All we need to make this dish is urad dal /split and husked black gram and curd. It is so flavourful and tasty. Also, it takes less than 10 minutes to prepare the pachadi.
