Freshly prepared pakodis of besan perked up with coriander, green chillies and green chillies are floated in a mouth-watering kadhi. The kadhi is quite richly flavoured with an assortment of spices ranging from cloves and cinnamon to fenugreek and coriander seeds, and the pakodas are an added attraction that make the Punjabi Pakoda Kadhi thoroughly irresistible! Make sure you simmer the kadhi for just a minute or two after adding the pakodas so that they absorb the flavours but do not become soggy.
