Pakora kadhi…if you know you know.
Pakora kadhi consists of a thick creamy yoghurt and gram flour curry. Pakoras are added to the curry, which soak up all those delicious flavours. It has a slightly tangy taste because of the yoghurt but totally delicious.
I have had so many requests for a recipe for my pakora kadhi. This is one of my all time fav things to eat and pure comfort food. It’s one of those dishes to cook when you have plenty of time and patience! But it’s so worth it.
What you need:
6 cloves garlic
1/2 inch ginger
1 kg plain yoghurt
1/2 cup gram flour (besan)
1 tbsp tamarind paste (imli)
2 tbsp cumin powder
2 tbsp cumin seeds
2 tbsp coriander powder
1 tbsp Kashmiri chilli powder
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
1/2 tbsp salt (adjust to your taste)
1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves (methi)
10-12 pakoras (Click here for my pakora recipe)
For the tempering (tarka);
1/3 cup oil
2-3 green chillies
For garnishing you’ll need 1 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves.
I always ground my own cumin and coriander powder and keep it coarse. It is much better than shop bought powders.
