Blogging Marathon# 25: Week 2/ Day 1 Theme: Cooking from a Book Dish: Cucumber Sweet & Sour Chutney (Keera Dosakaya Pachadi)
My theme for week 2 of BM# 25 is “Cooking from a Book”. Like a lot of you reading this post, I have a ton of cookbooks that I have bought over the years. I find a million reasons to buy a book and I see myself cooking through the entire book before buying. But once the book comes home, it sometimes gets neglected. I have to say I do refer to my cookbooks when I’m in a rut to make something.
So for this week’s theme, I decided to try some Indian dishes from my Indian cookbooks. For the first day I made “Cucumber Chutney/ Keera Dosakaya Pachadi” from “Cooking with Pedatha” cookbook. Keera dosakaya or salad/ english cucumber is rarely used in cooking in my household. It’s generally used in raitas or for salads, so this dish is a delicious variation for us.
