The highlight of the Rajasthani Pakoda Kadhi is the addition of crisp and fresh besan pakodas! This imparts a chewy, crunchy dimension to the kadhi making it more satiating. You will also find this kadhi to be more flavourful, as it uses a wider selection of spices than normal, everyday kadhi recipes. Such a splash of flavours is essential to enjoy food in extreme climates such as that found in Rajasthan.
