punjab di kadhi

I luv this punjabi style pakodi ki kadhi very much and infact this is my first post on kadhi,was just wondering i like kadhis more than dal on my daily basis cooking and still have not posted single recipe ,was thinking it is so common in my kitchen as twice a week atleast i make different type of kadhis so never thought of posting it, but offlate i came across so many kadhi recipes in blogosphere that i had to post one too in my blog ;) ,this pakode ki kadhi is actually a thick punjabi kadhi but in my style as this is what i prefer and make always,actually i had invited few of my friends on dinner last weekend and had made proper punjabi menu as makki ki roti de sarson ka saag,pakode ki kadhi and plain rice,aaloo gobi etc.but since im going on a short break i wont have time to post these recipes  so now im just sharing my punjabi kadhi and rest will share after my short break to INDIA.Sending this to pari for hosting this mth's flavours of punjab event ,started by nayna
