Recipe Notes

Interestingly. this is where I have found a way to keep this healthier and avoid the deep frying (that is all I can thing of these days, N is so scared that I will change the way all his favorite food look and taste 😛 ) coming back to point, I make the batter a little thicker than normal and instead of deep frying them, I fry them using a non stick paniyaram pan… uses much less oil.

  • Now add the pakoras to the kadhi simmer for about 2 mins.
  • garnish with corriander leaves and serve with steamy hot rice.
