Sprouted Green Gram and Palak Kadi

In Punjabi cuisine and in North India Kadi is a very famous dish. It is made out of butter milk and gram flour.It goes well with both rice and chappathi.

I tried this kadi with sprouted green gram and palak which is good for both diabetic patients and normal people. It is considered to be a healthy diet as sprouts are rich in protein and fiber.

Here is the recipe for you.


  • One cup of curd
  • 3 table spoon gram flour
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1/2 tsp asafoetida
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp ginger paste
  • 1/2 tsp green chilli paste
  • 1/2 tsp daniya powder
  • One Onion ( finely chopped)
  • One table spoon cooking oil
  • Salt as required

Ingredient for making pakoras

  • One cup of sprouted green gram
  • 1/4 cup of shredded palak leaves
  • 1/4 cup of chopped onion
  • 1/2 tsp red chilli powder
  • 1/2 tsp jeera powder
  • 2 tsp gram flour
  • Salt to taste
  • Cooking oil for frying

For the tadka

  • 1/2 tsp mustard
  • 1/2 tsp jeera
  • 1/2 tsp methi
  • 1 red chilli
  • Few curry leaves

  3. Make any random shape or balls.
  4. Heat oil in a kadai and deep fry them till they turn brown and crispy.
  5. Take them out on a tissue paper so that the paper soaks all the extra oil.
