Turnip Greens Pachadi...greens in a yogurt base!

If you saw my Red Radish Rasam post, you must have seen this bowl of creamy deliciousness with greens in it. Well it was a simple Turnip Greens Pachadi that I prepared that day to pair with the spicy hot Rasam and it was really good. I'm glad I had taken a few snaps of the pachadi, and I thought why not share this simple and healthy dish!

To be honest, you could just turn any veggie/fruit dish into a Kerala style Pachadi , a type of 'Raita', as long as it has a tadka (tempering) of mustard seeds, curry leaves and dry red chillies. Well thats my take on it! So when I prepared Turnips greens as a side dish, I thought , maybe it may taste better if I added some yogurt and it really did taste great.
My Strawberry Pineapple Pachadi was quite a hit among my family and friends, so give that a try too. It was very yummy!! :-)
I have prepared Turnip Greens stir fry before and I prepared it the same way , but without the potatoes.

This was just a quick substitution and a rather tasty one and I want to share it with you. :-)

Turnip Greens Pachadi Recipe
1. Prepare the Turnips Greens stir fry in same manner as I've done here ( You can skip the coconut and potatoes if you'd like or else add them too, more yummy! )
2. Once cooled, add the sauted turnips greens to about 1-2 cups of Yogurt and stir well until the yogurt has become smooth and the greens have mixed well. (Add more Yogurt if necessary)
3. Season well with Salt if needed , remember the turnip greens are already cooked with some salt, so add only as required.

There - simple , quick and easy! One more thing that I would recommend is to cut the turnip greens into small thin strips and chop them into bits, else they'll look like Turnip Green Noodles in your yogurt :-)

Whats your favorite side dish for lunch or dinner? Do share your thoughts!!
