  • We like our pakoda to be rich and spicy. You can adjust the amount of spice and ghee according to your taste.
  • If you want crisp pakoda you can add them straightway to the kadhi. And if you like soft pakoda after removing from oil soak them in a bowl of water for 1 minute. Press to remove excess water and then add to the prepared Kadhi.
  • To save time, fry the pakoda when Kadhi is cooking.
