Steamed Palak Pakoda Kadhi Recipe

Traditional pakoda kadhi is as unhealthy as it is delicious, since the pakodas are usually deep fried. We show you how to enjoy this kadhi without all the calories, by simply replacing the fried pakodas with steamed spinach pakodas that are both delicious and nutritious!



Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
Makes 4 servings



Ingredients

For the palak pakodas (makes 8 pakodas)
• ¾ cup blanched and chopped spinach (palak)
• ¼ cup besan (Bengal gram flour)
• ½ tsp chilli powder
• ½ tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
• A pinch of soda bi-carb
• 1 tsp oil
• Salt to taste



For the kadhi
• 1 cup low-fat yoghurt (dahi)
• 2 tbsp besan (Bengal gram flour)
• 1 tsp oil
• 1 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
• A pinch of asafoetida (hing)
• 5 curry leaves (kadi patta)
• ½ cup sliced onions
• 1 tsp finely chopped garlic (lehsun)
• ¼ tsp turmeric powder (haldi)
• 1 tsp green chilli paste
• Salt to taste



Method

For the palak pakodas
• Combine all the ingredients in a deep bowl and knead into a soft dough without using any water.
• Divide the dough into 8 equal portions and shape each portion into a round ball.
• Arrange the pakodas on a sieve and steam in a steamer for 7 to 8 minutes. Keep aside.



For the kadhi

• Combine the yoghurt, besan and 1 cup of water in a deep bowl, mix well and keep aside.
• Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan and add the cumin seeds.
• When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida, curry leaves, onions and garlic and sauté on a medium flame for 2 minutes.
• Add the turmeric powder, green chilli paste, yoghurt-besan mixture and salt, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 4 minutes, while stirring continuously.



Just before serving, reheat the kadhi, add the palak pakodas to it, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 or 2 minutes.
