Aloogedde Pachadi/Potato Raita


When ever I make one-pot rice dish I make pachadi/raita to go with it.  I had cooked potatoes which was in fridge for last two days, so today for our lunch I used that for making pachadi/raita.

One can add veggies like tomatoes, cucumber, green chillies, grated carrot along with this.  During festival, back home when we donot cook with onions, potato is used to make raithas. I just wanted to keep it simple so just added potaotes(cooked) and onions with little cilantro leaves. This is very simple recipe to make along any rice dishes.

Here is what I used

  • 1 cup – home made yogurt
  • 1 potato- skin removed and choped( can also crumble)
  • 2 tsp – red onion and cilantro finely chopped

Spices-red chilli powder, black pepper powder, turmeric and salt to taste.

Tempering-1 tsp of oil, mustard seeds, red chilli and hing.


  1. Cook potato in boiling water untill tender. Once cooled chop/ crumble.
  2. Sprinkle with salt, chilli powder, turmeric and black pepper.
  3. Mix pototes with yogurt add chopped onion and cilantro. Mix well.
  4. Do the tempering and pour over yogurt mixture.

We had this with rice usli. Enjoy!


Will send this to Sia for Ode to Potatoes and Dk’s for Potato Fe(a)st Events.
