We have all eaten dahi pakodis and dahi wadas but can you imagine the same pakodis in a coconut kadhi? Yes, there is a combination that truly tastes divine. The fluffy little pakodis which are deep-fried and soaked in water go well with a hot coconut and curd based kadhi topped with a sweet and spicy chutney, lots of sprouts and spring onions. The coconut kadhi uses coconut milk which is the liquid extracted with water from the coconut flesh. Coconut milk is now available in tetra packs at grocery stores, so you need not go through the effort of extracting it.
