Combo Dish Recipe 1

Hi Good Morning Friends,
I am going to introduce some traditional combo dishes here. Passed on from generations, these recipes are as varied in taste and flavour as they are in the ease of preparation. They can each be had with an accompanying rice item, complimenting each other or all together in one lovely stew. Some of these dishes are listed here...kandi pachadi-menthi majjiga, kandi podi-chintapandu pachadi, pappu-majjiga pulusu, patoli-tiyya pulusu, patoli-menthi majjiga etc., if you know any more of these culinary treasures, then do inbox me or post a comment underneath. Enjoy!
Kandi Pachadi-Menthi Majjiga
Here in this post, I will write both the recipes, for easy reference. Just scroll down to get the text of other recipe.
Kandi pachadi is a chutney made with lentils. Menthi Majjiga is thin buttermilk with added spices. They both can be consumed with rice. Kandi Pachadi is served along with menthi majjiga in my house.
