About Pakode Waali Kadhi Recipe

There are different types of Pakore that can be made for the Kadhi but the ones made in our house were always the Onion ones, although sometimes my mother added Spinach as well to give it an extra lift. The smell of the Pakore’s being deep fried in the kitchen and the kadhi being cooked used to be the highlight of most Sunday’s for us and it still reminds me of home.
