The palak pakodas in this recipe are steamed in a steamer and not deep-fried. The curd and besan combination makes the kadhi a rich source of protein and calcium too.

Just by not deep-frying the pakodas, reducing the use of fat and by replacing full-fat curds with low-fat curds, the calorie count has reduced from 216 kcal to 96 kcal per serving and fat from 15.4 gm to 3.5 gm per serving.

Teams up well with hot rice and rotis as well.
