Kadhi fits into any menu, being a traditional favourite. While regular sour curds Kadhis qualifies as simple, this Methi Pakoda Kadhi gets the status of a specialty thanks to a simple enhancement of adding methi and besan dumplings to it. Adding chopped onions and chilli powder to the pakodas gives them a nice texture and flavour respectively, while fruit salt helps them cook completely, without being bulky inside. The best part is that when made using the Microwave , both the kadhi and the pakode take very little time to cook, so you can make them fresh just before serving!

Pakoda kadhi in microwave.. very nice recipe.. the pakodas are soft and flavoured with methi.. I was worried that the curds would curdle.. but stirring in-between does not let it happen.. This made really quick.. and taste equally yumm.. I served this with hot rice..
