I am a huge fan of Indian food. One of my favorite dishes is Kadhi Pakora. I never really knew what "Kadhi Pakora" meant, I just knew that I liked it. My friend, Seema, explained that pakoras are the fritters made from chickpea flour (AKA Besan or Gram Flour) that usually have vegetables in them, and the kadhi is the sauce or gravy that they sit in. Kadhi is apparently also served as is with rice or roti (a type of Indian wheat flatbread).
I decided to make the pakoras with a minimal amount of batter - just enough to hold them together - and add them to the kadhi at the last minute to keep their crispiness.
I have to say I was pretty happy with how they turned out. Give them a try - the recipe is long, but it's really not that much work, and the result is well worth it!
