Kadhi Chawal 

Kadhi is made with yogurt which got sour in taste. Usually at my house my mom use to make this on sundays for the lunch. We use to have this with chawal/rice. Also, in kadhi we put pakoras which is made with potato, onions, gram flour and chilles. Its a deep fried snack which i love. So, whenever u are making kadhi make enough pakoras coz you will eat some of them while making.

For kadhi:

2 Cups Sour Yogurt
2 Tablespoon gram flour/besan
2 cups water
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1/2 teaspoon red chilli powder
3 dried red chillies
1 teaspoon mustard seeds
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
2 clove crushed garlic
1/2 teaspoon grated ginger
1 small onions, thinly sliced
1/2 teaspoon garam masala
6-7 curry leaves
salt to taste

For Pakoras: 

1 medium sized potato, cut into thin small pieces
1 medium sized red onion, thinly sliced
2 green chilles, finely chopped
1 cup gram flour/besan
1 tablespoon ajwain
1 teaspoon turmeric powder
1 teaspoon kalonji
1/2 cup chopped green coriander leaves
Salt to taste 






For Pakoras: 

Mix together the gram flour, potatoes, onions, chillies, ajwain, kalonji, turmeric powder, green coriander leaves and salt to make thick batter by adding little water. Keep the batter aside for sometime so that the flavour blend together. 

Meanwhile For kadhi: 

Blend the yogurt, gram flour, water, 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder, chilli powder and salt to taste in the mixer and set aside. 

Heat oil in a deep skillet on high heat and start adding the prepared batter of pakoras with a ice-cream scoop one at a time and fry the pakoras until golden brown and crispy. 

Fry all the pakoras and keep it aside. 

In the same skillet reduced the oil to 1 tablespoon carefully, add mustard seeds and let it get splutter, add the cumin seeds and wait until it gets brown, add the crushed garlic and grated giner and sliced onions to the oil, add turmeric powder, garam masala, curry leaves and cook until the onions gets translucent. 

At this point of time add the blended yogurt to the skillet and stir continuously to avoid any lumps. Add water if you feel the kadhi is getting thick. Cook it for 5-7 minutes. Then add the pakoras into the kadhi. 

Serve hot with cooked basmati rice.
