Kadi pakodi recipe

If you try a little and think of a proper substitute, you really do not have to give up your favourite food just for the sake of fats/oil used in them and putting on weight . After I came to know from the blogosphere that your paniyaaram pan /Aebelskiver pan can be used in a number of other ways too and not just for making paniyaarams, I have been regularly using it for different purposes. I hate deep frying. I do it only once in a while or if its really necessary to do so. In this case, I made the pakodas in paniyaaram pan instead of deep frying them. That made no difference to the taste of the delicious kadi pakodi. I love it with chapatis/phulkas. See a similar version of laavanya’s from whom I got the idea of using the paniyaaram pan.
