Kadhi Pakora/ Kadhi Pakoda..

Simple Weekend Lunch...

Kadhi with ginger and green chillies, Pakora's with carom seeds and finely chopped green chillies with a tempering of cummin, fenugreek, red chillies, garlic and fresh fennel greens!

Yogurt based Curry with Chickpea flour dumplings

This Kadhi Pakora recipe is a melding of the Gujarathi Kadhi base with a paste of green chillies and ginger and the Punjabi Kadhi Pakora, without using the traditional onions and potatoes in the dumpling. Here carom seeds and finely chopped green chillies add the flavour and the spice. Additional flavour combinations come from a tempering of cummin seeds, crushed fenugreek seeds, asafoetida, red chillies and lightly crushed whole cloves of garlic. A final garnish of fresh fennel fronds, instead of traditional curry leaves and corainder add another dimension!
There are several techniques and combinations of this classic, like the one in Naagu's version. Also came across someone who had tried 3 different combinations for this recipe using a baked muffin version of kadhi pakora's.
