About Kadi Pakora

Traditionally, North Indian vegetable pakora curry recipe is made into a sour, salty, hot and slight sweet soupy variant made from tantalizingly homemade yoghurt and fritters (fried dumplings of onion and gram flour).
Besan kadhi (powdered gram flour and yoghurt soup) is loaded with herbs, which are considered good for digestion.
The use of homemade yoghurt helps in maintaining gut flora and improves nutrient absorption. In Northern India, pakoras are added to the gram flour gravy and sour yoghurt at the end of preparation at low heat to avoid loss of nutrients caused by overheating.

It is eaten either with boiled rice or jeera rice or roti. In Gujarat and Rajasthan, it is usually served with khichdi, roti(chapatti), paratha or rice. It is considered a light food.

Punjabi kadhi is thicker and creamier than the variants made in Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Gujarati or Sindh.
