Fulwadi ni Kadhi - Deep Fried Chick Pea flour rolls in a Spicy Seasoned Yogurt Soup

Pin it to save it for later !

To me a hot and steamy bowl of Fulwadi ni Kadhi is not just a bowl of food that fills my tummy , but it is a bowl full of memories, childhood memories which brings in more than the tiding memories of taste and flavours of this lip smacking yogurt soup.

If you are of Indian origin,  by now you must have enjoyed Pakode wali Kadhi, Rajsthani Gatte ki Kadhi, Gujarati Kadhi or even Bindi ( Okra ) Kadhi, I bet you never heard of Fulwadi ni Kadhi. Must be intrigued by now, right ? Sure you are. Let me tell you that you will not find Fulwadi ni Kadhi recipe anywhere, as this recipe doesn't belong to any region of India, this recipe was churned out by my dad in a desperate situation, yes desperate, when your beloved wife demands something and that too while she is pregnant any situation becomes desperate :)

Like people say Mums- to- be are at the mercy of their taste buds, many expected mothers have cravings they can't simply ignore. I too had cravings during my both pregnancies, first time all I wanted to have that was coal ( weird right ) and second time I wanted to indulge in sweet food, one night I had cravings for Peda ( Indian fudge ) Lol, poor husband drove up to 20 miles for it. Don't know the reason behind this cravings or sometime weird cravings, it could be hormonal and physiological reasons for cravings or it could be pure indulgence :P

So late at night mum had this cravings too while she was expecting me, she wanted to have Hot and steamy Pakode Wali kadhi with Rice. Now almost 10 pm at night, dad wasn't in a mood for frying pakoda, so he headed straight to kandoi shop to get pakoda, it was not his best day that kandoi was run out of pakodas, so dad came back home with Fulwadi .  He came home, he prepared  normal kadhi and added Fulwadi in the kadhi, mum thoroughly enjoyed that meal, she (maybe me too) was satisfied and since then we have Fulwadi Ni Kadhi on our menu.

This tantalising and simply irresistible Fulwadi Ni Kadhi is so easy to prepare. Thick, spicy and slightly sour, gluten free yogurt soup prepared with yogurt, chick pea flour and delicious deep fried Fulwadi submerged in it, loaded with cumin, curry leaves and red chilll flavoured tadka ( tempering ) on top. With steamy hot Jeera (cumin) rice, it is an immensely satisfying meal.  Fulwadi Ni Kadhi could be a year round dish loved by all , but I love to devour once temperatures starts dropping until the spring arrives. Hot and steamy Fulwadi Ni Kadhi in a bowl, warms up your fingers, your body and above all warms up your soul.
