SPINACH PAKODI KADHI with roasted garlic- GUEST POST

Today I am happy to be guest writing for one of my first blogger friends. Now, we all know blogging is a lot of work which we all love, but doing it with two little ones can pose some challenges. Shruthi, a beautiful photographer manages both pretty well and her sincerity can be seen in her work. 
   
PLEASE visit her beautiful blog Part time chef, for this recipe and do check out some of her gorgeous pictures. Please do show her some of the love and support you have shown me.  Thank you so much.

Today, I have a very popular North Indian dish, Kadhi.  A simple yogurt gravy which is made special by addition some fritters. It goes perfect with rotis/flatbread or rice. Very popular in the northern part of India. I have made it my version by roasting some garlic as a surprise addition. For the full recipe check out Here.

Thanks Shruthi for giving me this opportunity and letting me take over your blog for a day.  Looking forward to a growing friendship.
