All of us know how effective yoghurt is in fighting the summer heat. And as we move towards summers I’d like to share a recipe that will help you beat the summer heat to some extent with ingredients such as mint and fresh coriander – a combination that is sure to help you protect yourself and your loved ones from heat wave.
20 gms Pakodiyan (or boondi as it is called in some regions)
125 ml Yoghurt (dahi)
Salt (according to test)
1 pinch Red chilli powder
¼ Tsp. Mint powder
¼ Tsp. Cumin powder
10 gms Fresh Coriander (finely chopped)
Take yoghurt and beat it into a thin mix. Add a little water.
Add salt, red chilli powder and mint powder. Mix.
Add pakodis and mix.
Add cumin powder and mix.
Garnish with finely chopped fresh coriander.
Serve as a side-dish with pulao, puris or chappatis.
Pakodis are made of besan (chickpea flour) and are quite nutritious.
