Cheese Palak pakode in Kadhi

Kadhi and Moru kuzhambhu plays an important role during summer in Indian houses. Because the curd becomes sour so quick for Indian climate during summer and it would be difficult to consume it with plain rice. 

Curds have a pleasant and refreshing taste. It has many therapeutic values and is high in protein, calcium and phosphorous.
