Gujarati Kadhi - Seasoned Yogurt and Gram Flour Soup ! Kem Cho?

Two-three weeks back we were invited by our family friend to a dinner and dance party. ...after 12 at midnight it turned into a night club ;)....It was my friend's 50th birthday....we had a nice time there..met few other friends too...and as usual I always ended up in foodie conversation..and I mentioned my blog to them ....and one of my friend Ranjanben mentioned to me that she likes particularly "KADHI" made by LOHANA GUJARATI....which I am...So sweet of her...I did promise her that soon I'll make it and post it on my blog...

Gujarati Kadhi  is more watery than Punjabi kadhi, mildly spiced, sweet-sourness that is typical of Gujarati cooking. This kadhi is great to eat with plain rice or khichdi.





You will need :-
  • 2 cups sour Yogurt ( I used very low fat )
  • 2-3 tbsp Gram Flour ( Besan )
  • 2 tbsp crushed Green chillies and ginger
  • 1/4 cup jaggery
  • Few Curry leaves
  • Fresh chopped coriander
  • Salt to taste
You will need for tempering
  • 1 tbsp Ghee + 1 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin seeds
  • 1 red whole chili
  • 2-3 cloves ( Laving )
  • 1 piece Cinnamon stick ( taj )
  • 1/4 tsp methi seeds
  • pinch of Asafoetida (hing)
Method :-
Mix gram flour, yogurt and 3 or 3 1/4 cups of water....mix with the hand blender and make very smooth paste. Add CG paste, curry leaves, jaggery, salt and put on a low flame and bring it to boil...please do not boil for a long time but to simmer it on a low heat for a lesser time....Meanwhile prepare heat ghee and oil in another pan, add cumin seeds when they splutter add hing, cloves, Cinnamon stick. red chili and methi seeds. Fry for a few minutes and then pour over the kadhi. Boil for a few minutes more. Garnish with fresh Coriander leaves...Enjoy with steamy rice, khichdi and roti....Enjoy as much as me and my family do...

  25. One of the reasons i loveee Gujarati food is not only the deliciousness but the addition of a bit of sugar in savoury dishes which we always do!
