Kadhi pakoda, a beloved main course in the menu of desi cuisine, has captivated the taste buds of food enthusiasts worldwide. This flavorful curry, enriched with gram flour, showcases vibrant undertones of either buttermilk or tamarind. The culinary experience is heightened with the addition of fritters just before serving, creating a delightful combination. While numerous kadhi pakoda recipes abound on the internet, a recent Instagram video by British chef Jake Dryan has caught the attention of the global Indian community.

In his video, Jake begins the culinary journey by blending gram flour with buttermilk and infusing it with an array of spices. Placing a wok on the stove, he heats oil and introduces fenugreek seeds, red chilies, chopped garlic, and green chilies, followed by onions. Once the ingredients are cooked to perfection, Jake adds the prepared buttermilk and gram flour mixture to the wok. For the fritters, he mixes another batch of gram flour with turmeric, garam masala, red chili powder, salt, and water to create a thick paste.
