Punjabi Murgh Kadhi

Kadhi is a Punjabi dish, in which onion pakoras are cooked in a gravy made of chickpea flour and yogurt. It is a vegetarian dish. But I gave it a twist, instead of onion pakodas, I added chicken pakodas, hence making it a non vegetarian dish. Try out this simple yet mouth watering kadhi.
