A spicy No Onion or NO Garlic recipe of punjabi kadhi made up of gram/ chickpea flour and curd, added with chickpea spicy fried balls. But these fried balls always resisted me to cook delicious kadhi, so here is a substitute of deep fried fatty pakodas.

Recipe Notes
  • Keep stirring kadhi until first boil otherwise it may curdle.
  • Let the kadhi cook after one boil at the lowest possible flame for atleast 40 minutes.
  • Keep stirring at regular intervals.
  • For pakodas do not fill the appe tawa grove full with batter, as we want a bit small in size pakodas than appe.
  • If you do not have appe pan, you can deep fry the pakodas.
  • Pour batter immediately in appe pan after mixing with baking soda. Otherwise it may result hard pakodas.
