** If you feel kadhi is too thick adjust water accordingly.

** You can add any variety of pakodi's in the place of onion pakodi.

** If you want pakodi's in kadhi to be crisp then add it while serving.

** Add little by little while preparing batter for pakodi's. I just sprinkled verey little amount of water.

** You can also serve kadhi without adding any fritters.

** Kadhi taste good when we use bit sour yogurt.

** After adding yogurt mixture , stir it often otherwise it will burn at bottom.
