Punjabi Kadi

One more Punjabi dish which is very common in every home, usually on thursday's.Kids love it, Elders love it, everybody loves it.

I learnt this one in India from my sister in law. But I have done lil bit variations in it :-), by using Buttermilk and no pakoras (for all calorie conscious people). Usually people make it with Curd.
