Kadhi Pakora

If you have some curd siting in a refrigerator for couple of days and turned sour then this is the best recipe to make with it ,I learned this from my mom, this is a typical Punjabi recipe that you can serve in Lunch.. If you don't have enough time to make pakoras, you can replace it with potatoes or just make plain kadhi .It can be served with rice or chapati.
