Kadhi Pakoda is a traditional Indian cuisine. It’s quite popular all over India. Each region has its own recipe; for example Punjabi Kadhi, Gujrati Kadhi, Bihari style Kadhi and more. Here I am sharing my Mom’s recipe with a little twist.

There are two elements in Kadhi Pakoda. First is Kadhi, which is a curry made from yogurt, besan/gram chickpea flour and spices. Second is Pakoda/ Fritters. These are made of gram chickpea flour.

The twist in following recipe is that I added Spinach to Kadhi. In fritters, I added kale, spinach, spring onion, onion and cilantro leaves. These fritters were so good that they vanished soon after I took them out 😂 so I made another batch.

Do try this recipe and let me know your feedback. It’s tastes amazing with rice.
