Belly-warming but fresh, this Indian ‘bubble and squeak’ is just what you want after over-indulging on Christmas Day
Pachadi, a south Indian dish, has become my answer to many a lone vegetable lying at the bottom of the fridge. It is my Indian “bubble and squeak”. Although there are no mashed potatoes here, there are plenty of leftover Christmas root vegetables, which have been given a big, bold flavour makeover using mustard seeds, ginger and chillies, before being doused in coconut yoghurt. It is belly-warming but fresh, enlivening but also comforting, and exactly what I want after eating far too much, as always, on Christmas Day.
