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

Gujarati Kadhi is a popular dish, which is prepared with yogurt and besan. It is sweet, spicy and tangy, perfect with hot and steamy rice or khichdi.

Gujarati Kadhi, is a yogurt based creamy soup. Gujarati Kadhi is thinner than Punjabi kadhi, mildly spiced, sweet-sourness that is typical of Gujarati cooking.  This kadhi is great to eat with plain rice or khichdi.

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. As usual, I always ended up in foodie conversation, and I mentioned my blog to them.

One of my friend Ranjanben mentioned to me that she likes particularly "KADHI" made by LOHANA GUJARATI, which I am. She asked me if I can make this recipe and post it on my blog for her. I did promise her that soon I'll make it and post it on my blog, so here I am with Gujarati Kadhi!

Gujarati Kadhi is one of my favourite dishes since I was little girl and appears frequently on our dining table, especially I love to pair this kadhi with Tuver-Gungo or Pigeon Pea Curry or Black Chick Pea Curry , hot steaming rice. Easily I could gulp down couple bowls of this. I find this combo so delicious and comforting!

Note:-
In Gujarati Kadhi we do not add turmeric.
If you really want to experience an authentic taste of this kadhi then make vaghar with ghee.
