Kadhi Pakora / Pakoras

At the local Indian market, they have a small, vegetarian "cafeteria-style" lunch/dinner counter that we go to as often as we're able. One of my favorite dishes there is a yogurt curry with pakoras swimming in it. Pakoras are a snack made with, in this case, veggies dredged in a chickpea (besan) flour batter and then deep fried. I've been on the hunt for a good kadhi pakora recipe and found this keeper. Just don't use thick, Greek style yogurt like I did; you want more of a soupy consistency rather than what my photo shows. You can vary the veggies you use here. Try onion strips, spinach and even paneer, Indian cheese. Adapted from a recipe at http://www.indianfoodsite.com/. Enjoy!
