Kadhi Chawal

Punjabis are predominantly wheat eating people. They cook rice only on special occasions. Rice is eaten with Rajma, Chole or Kadhi. In winter rice is cooked with peas called matarwale chawal. Kadhi rice and Rajma rice are my favourite dishes too. I prepare it on Sundays or on holidays for lunch.
Punjabi Kadhi
















Ingredients:
- Sour curd - 1kg, Gram flour- 1 cup, Water -1 litre, Onions-2 chopped, Garlic-6 cloves, Ginger-1" piece, Salt - 2 tsp., 1 tea spoon Garam Masala, Cooking oil- 3 tbsp., Chopped coriander-50 grams.
For Baghar or Tadka: - Mustard (Rai) -1 tsp., Fenugreek (Methi)-1/2 tsp., Cumin seed (Jeera)- 1/2 tsp., 6-7 curry leaves
Pakoras (Dumplings) Gram flour -250 grams, Sliced onions, green chillies, fenugreek or spinach chopped, salt -1 tsp., red chilli powder -1/2 tsp., and oil to fry.
Method
Heat oil in a pan. Add mustard, fenugreek and cumin seeds. Add paste of garlic and ginger. Fry the paste till it gets brown, add chopped onions and fry them till light brown. Keep aside. Make batter with gram flour, add water, salt and spices. Beat well till it is light and fluffy. Add onion, chopped chillies and fenugreek or spinach leaves. Heat oil in a Kadai. Make pakoras. Beat curd, add gram flour and water and stir well. Add this to the fried onion-ginger garlic paste. Add salt and powdered masalas to it. Bring it to a boil, lower the heat. Cook for 10-15 minutes (stirring frequently) till it coats the back of the ladle, add pakoras and chopped coriander. Cover and keep it aside.
Kadhi goes well with boiled rice.

Along with e cigarettes, most people are pleased with several puffs, preserving the remaining pertaining to afterwards.
E-cigarettes are much less expensive regular smokes.
Based on in your geographical area, the pack of normal smokes could cost between $5 and $12 the pack.
