How to make Punjabi Kadhi Pakora


  • Put one cup of gram flour (Besan) in a bowl, then add chopped onions, green chilies finely chopped, baking soda and salt as needed.
  • Prepare a thick slurry with a little water in it. If the solution is thin then the pakoras will not be good.
  • Heat the oil in medium flame in a pan and make small rounds with the help of your fingertips and put it in the oil. At one time you can put 6-8 small balls. Fry it until medium brown. Reverse it, make it cooked on the other side, then drain it out and put it in a paper napkin, so that its extra oil gets out. Make pakora of the whole solution and keep it aside.


  • In another bowl, take curd and gram flour (Besan) as per the volume is written above and mix it well with the help of hand blender.
  • Dilute solution together with water. Then add turmeric powder and salt as per your requirement. Mix well, keep in mind that there will be no lumps of gram flour in it.
  • Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a deep pan, add mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds in it. When it starts cracking, add cumin seeds, ginger paste and fry for about 1/2 minutes.
  • Now add the solution made with curd and gram flour (Besan) and mix thoroughly.
  • Boil this mixture for 10 minutes, which removes the raw taste of gram flour (Besan). Keep it running continuously, otherwise, the mixture can stick to the surface of the pan. If the mixture is much thicker then you get more water. The mixture should not be too thick.
  • Place a separate pan on the middle flame, add little oil to it and add Kashmiri red chili powder and curry leaves. Pour the Besan mixture immediately on this tempering and sauté for a minute.
  • Now add pakoras in this tempering mixture and cook for 5 minutes in medium flame. Now your kadhi pakora is ready, take it off and garnish it with green coriander leaves. Read also.

  • Keep stirring the kadhi mixture continuously, otherwise, the mixture can stick on the surface of the pan.
