How to make Punjabi Kadhi Pakoda

  1. To make the pakodas- Take sliced/chopped onions in a bowl, add besan, green chilli and salt to it.Now add water little by little and mix well till a thick batter coating forms on the onions. Leave for 15 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a kadhai, once oil is moderately hot drop spoonfuls of the thick batter into the oil. Fry till golden. Remove and drain.
  3. For the kadhi- Remove oil from the kadhai, leaving just 2 tbsps, add cumin, coriander, asafoetida and fenugreek seeds to it and saute till fragrant.Make sure that heat is low.
  4. Combine the curd and besan and whisk well in a bowl till no lumps are left.Dilute with 2 cups water, add turmeric, green chilli and salt.Now carefully pour this into the pan and stir well to combine.
  5. Let come to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for half an hour, adding more water if necessary.
  6. Make the tempering- Heat ghee in a small pan, add curry leaves, red chillies and deggi mirch. Pour hot on top of the kadhi.Garnish with coriander leaves.
  7. Serve hot with freshly boiled rice.
My Tip: The secret lies in using good quality sour curd and simmering it for a long time.
