METHI PAKODA KADHI

     For the first time i tried kadhi after i tasted in my friend’s place and that really turned out so well. I took the recipe from her, the original source of the recipe is from Tarla dalal’s space. I slightly modified the original recipe to suit my family’s taste. Thanks J for introducing such a yummy dish to me.
