ShareIt was already half past eight and my dinner wasn't ready.Rice was made but had nothing to go with it.I was terribly bored with the dals and the non veg stuff.
Finally I remembered the Kadhi Pakoda that my husband loves.The urge to relish the yummy kadhi was so much that I in no time I was ready with all the ingredients and set.



Here are the Ingredients:

For the pakodas:

  • Chana dal-1cup
  • Zeera-1/2tsp
  • Chopped green chillies-2tsp
  • Chopped corriander leaves/methi leaves-1tbsp
  • Chopped onions-1tbsp
  • Salt to taste
Soak chana dal in water for about an hour.If in a hurry,soak it in warm water.15mins should be enough.
Grind the chana dal coarsely.
Add the remaining ingredients and mix well.
Heat oil in a kadhai.
Take a lemon sized ball of the batter and flatten it between the plams n slide it into the oil.
Deep fry all the pakodas in a similar manner.





Variation:
A shortcut for the pakodas is to use besan with the remaining ingredients and fry the pakodas.


Ingredients for the kadhi:
  •  yogurt-1 1/2 cups
  •  Onions-1small
  • Tomato-1small
  • Grated coconut-1tbsp
  • Zeera(cumin)-1/2tsp
  • Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
  • Salt-to taste
  • Red chilli powder-1tsp
  • Chopped corriander leaves-1tbsp

Grind the onions,tomato,coconut and zeera together.
Pour this into a deep pot.
Add the chilli powder,turmeric powder and salt
Beat the yogurt and add it to the mixture.
Switch on the flame and let the mix boil for 2 mins.Switch off flame.
Add the chopped corriander leaves.

Add the fried pakodas .Let them soak for about 15mins.

Finally its time for the tempering
  • Mustared seeds-1/2tsp
  • Curry leaves-few
  • Dry red chillies-2
  • Hing-a pinch
  • Oil
Pour the sizzling tempering onto the kadhai.Serve hot.
