Kadhi-Pakoda-Recipe
Kadhi Pakoda or Kadhi Pakora is excellent side dish with steamed rice and prepared in various method across various states in India. Basic besan, yogurt mix remains same but the flavoring differs in most of the kadhi recipes of course not considering Sindhi Kadhi in which yogurt is not used. Kadhi pakora or as we call it kadhi chawal since normally kadhi is served with steamed rice or jeera rice for a delicious and comfort meal.


There's nothing like hot pipping kadhi chawal and if it happens to be kadhi with pakoda then it's gets better. I love kadhi chawal with or without pakora so I am fine either way, but then I don't make kadhi very often since DH is not fan of kadhi and I have seen most of the men doesn't like kadhi chawal for some unknown reason !
