    If you already know the process of cooking Punjabi kadhi Pakora with rice then you will find a lot of similarities with our today’s recipe.

    I am a die-hard fan of this preparation. Whenever I think of this dish, I become nostalgic and it reminds me of one story from my childhood, which is very close to my heart. 

    When I was in class 5 or 6, my school time was 12 pm to 5 pm every weekday but on Saturday it was from 7 to 11 in the morning. I did not like waking up in the morning and go to school on Saturdays. My aunt convinced me to do so by showing the greed of cooking Kadhi pakora. On those days, the only inspiration for me to go to school on such early morning was that I will get Kadhi pakora to eat once I came back from school.

    Eating Kadhi Pakora with rice or Bajra Bhakri after returning from school was a blessing for me.

    We used to make ‘Mirchicha Thecha’ (chili paste) as a side dish with this delicious combination of Kadhi Pakora and rice or Bhakri. I really like to eat ‘Mirchicha Thecha’ with Kadhi Pakora. My aunt’s hand-cooked ‘Mirchicha Thecha’ has a unique and mouth-watering taste.
