Masoor dal Pokoda Kadhi/Pokori Kadhi/Pokoras Kadhi

Masoor dal Pokoda Kadhi/Pokori Kadhi/Pokoras Kadhi

Preparation time: 30 minutes
Cooking Time:20 minutes
Total Time:50 minutes

Here is one more healthy fusion for all of you!.Masoor dal/red lentil pokoda. I have choosed this lentils/dals because very few(in Odisha) of us use this dal in their kitchen.And of course with their high protein content they make an ideal meat subsitute.Now you can go ahead and use this dal in many variations.

Kadhi or karhi is an Indian dish. It consists of a thick gravy based on chickpea flour, and contains vegetable fritters called pakoras, to which sour yogurt is added to give it little sour taste. It is often eaten with boiled rice or roti.

In Northern India, pakoras are added to the chickpea gravy and sour yogurt is added to add flavour to it. They are eaten either with boiled rice or roti.In Rajasthan and Gujarat, it is usually served with khichdirotiparatha or rice. It is considered a light food. Rajasthani and Gujarati kadhi differs from the Uttar Pradesh variety. Traditionally, it is sweeter than the other variants, because sugar or jaggery is added to it, but it can be made without sugar for a more sour taste. It is eaten without pakoras and its consistency is slightly thinner.
Bishnoi and Bagri tribe usually make kadhi in evening every day.
