Methi Pakoda Kadhi ( Mcrowave Recipe)

Kadhi fits into any menu, being a traditional favourite. While regular sour curds Kadhis qualifies as simple, this Methi Pakoda Kadhi gets the status of a specialty thanks to a simple enhancement of adding methi and besan dumplings to it. Adding chopped onions and chilli powder to the pakodas gives them a nice texture and flavour respectively, while fruit salt helps them cook completely, without being bulky inside. The best part is that when made using the Microwave , both the kadhi and the pakode take very little time to cook, so you can make them fresh just before serving!
