Last night I was over the top with tooth ache.
The strongest medication in the house couldn’t touch it, but it sure touched me! Talk about a wordy post I wrote — ouch.
After that, I can only hang my head in shame, and very humbly offer this up as my next installment for Nupur’s recipe marathon.
Today I followed some good advice from the comments — cloves really did help!
Many thanks for that 🙂
I was still craving comfort food tonight. I had kadhi pakora on my mind all day,
but I hardly felt like cooking, nevermind deep-frying.
I followed the pakora recipe almost to the letter — skipping potatoes, and using ginger-garlic paste and green chile paste to avoid chewy items.
I baked the pakora batter in mini-muffin pans sprayed with Pam — a la the baked masala vadai recipe. They came out fluffy and light, a complete success.
I would make these again just for a snack.
For the kadhi, I followed Anita’s rule — with the small addition of curry leaves, simply because I love their fragrance and flavor.
The fluffy little “pakoras”, soaked in slightly spicy kadhi, made the perfect post-holiday indulgence — a very healthy dish in spite of itself — and it was easy on the ol’ tooth, too 🙂
Thanks to Nags, Koki, and Anita for the recipes and inspiration.
