Well this is one dish I make for myself! I love Curry Pakora. So without wasting anymore time here is my recipe for it-

Ingredients: Serves Four

Ingredients

Ingredients- Kadhi Pakoda

For Pakora:
1 cup Besan (gram flour)
Pinch of cumin seeds
Coriander Seeds
1 small chopped onion
a pinch of turmeric powder
red chilli powder (as per taste)
water (to make a smooth batter)
salt to taste
Oil for frying

For Kadhi:
2 spoons Vegetable Oil
1 cup besan
3 Cups yoghurt
2-3 tsp minced garlic
4-5 Dry Red chillies
7-8 Curry leaves
1 tbsp mustard seeds
½ tbsp fenugreek seeds (methi dana)
1 tbsp cumin seeds
1 tbsp coriander seeds
2-3 cloves
1/2 tbsp turmeric powder
1/2 tbsp red chilli powder
1/2 tbsp coriander seeds
3/4 Cinnamon Quillings
Cilantro
Salt to taste

Method:

Pakora:
Mix besan and all the other ingredients in a bowl. Add water to make a smooth batter. Make round balls and deep fry them to make pakodas. Take them out on a paper napkin so that the paper soaks all the extra oil. Keep aside.

Kadhi:

I use the egg beater to whisk besan, yoghurt and water. I also add salt, turmeric powder and red chilli powder at this stage (Some people add salt after the Kadhi is cooked). For 3 cups of yoghurt you can take 6/7 cups of water (water should be double or more of the yoghurt quantity). The mixture should be of butter milk consistency. Put this mixture in a pan and bring it to boil 2/3 times. Then lower the flame and let it simmer for approximately 20 minutes. Keep stirring all the time.

Kadhi Tadka:
In another pan take oil and heat it. Add mustard seeds, cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, coriander seeds, cinnamon quillings, minced garlic, cloves and let them pop. Add curry leaves, green chilli, and dry red chilli to the above. After this has fried for a couple of minutes add turmeric powder, red chilli powder and fry. Add this tadka (spics infused oil) to the Kadhi above.
Let this boil for another 5 minutes and then add the pakoras. Stir a couple of times carefully so that pakodas don’t break and boil for another 3-5 minutes.
Sprinkle cilantro and serve hot with rice.
