Khadi/ Kadai Pakoda

This is one of the North Indian dishes which my hubby likes. I am not soo found of this as i dont have curd at all. Sending this recipe to Indian Cooking Challenge Sep 2010.

We need:

Sour curd 1cup
Besan/ gram flour 2sps
Onion chopped 1/4 cup
Curry leaves 4
Green chilli 1
Chilli powder 1/2 sp
Haldi 1/4 sp
Salt to taste
Cilantro chopped 1/2 cup
Jeera 1/4 sp
Mustard seeds 1/4 sp
Red chilli 1
Udad dal 1sp
Methi seeds 1/4 sp
Masoor dal wada or any other wada or pakoda
Oil 4sps


Beat sour curd throughly and add 4cups water and mix well.
In a small bowl add some hot water and 2 sps of besan and mix well.
Now add this besan mixture to the curd mixture.
Switch on stove and let this cook on low flame.
Add salt, haldi and chilli powder.
Keep stiring in between.
Meanwhile heat another pan and heat oil for making tadka or tempering.
Now add curry leaves, jeera, mustard seeds, udad dal, red chilli, green chilli, chopped onions, methi seeds.
Once the onions turn light brown color switch off flame and keep this tadka or tempering aside.
When the curd and besan mixture is boiled and bubbles appear, that is when it turn little thick.
Switch off the flame and addup the prepared tadka/ tempering.
U can have this as it is with rice.
It would taste even better if u can addup some pakoda or vada to this khadi.
I have added Masoor dal vada.
Finally garnish with cilantro and serve hot.
