This kadhi is similar to a pakoda kadhi except that these pakoda like "pithore" are made differently. The kadhi is tangy because it uses sour curds instead of fresh curds. The Rajasthanis have acquired a taste for sour curds but not many of us can appreciate such a sharp kadhi. You can use fresh curds in place of sour curds.

    These pithore's are much tastier than i thought it would be. Also the kadhi, which is sour and tangy in taste.. Pithore and kadhi togather makes a super combo ...
