Gujarati Kadhi was born [in my kitchen,of course] after I made the Punjabi Kadi Pakora.After this I went on and prepared Taro Kadhi, capsicum kadhi, Palak kadhi.All these are still in my drafts and today I made up my mind to post Gujarati kadhi.
This kadhi is a lot thinner in consistency when compared to Punjabi Kadi Pakora.A very light and yummy accompaniment for steamed rice
Yogurt / Curd- 2 cups
Besan / gram flour - 2 tablespoons
Ginger green chilli paste - 1 teaspoon
Sugar- 1 tablespoon
Curry leaves a few
Turmeric powder- a pinch
Salt to taste
Oil- 1 tablespoon
Mustard- 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds- 1 teaspoon
Red chillies-2 , broken into bits
Asafoetida powder- a pinch
Coriander leaves to garnish
- Beat together curd,besan, 2 cups water, turmeric powder, ginger green chilli paste, sugar and salt.[I ran this mixture in a blender jar for a minute so that there are no lumps.]
- In a pan put in this blended mixture, curry leaves and bring to a boil.
- Simmer for 5- 10 minutes till the raw smell of besan disappears.Add more water if needed.
- Meanwhile, heat a small pan with oil and put in the ingredients for tempering.
- When it splutters,pour this over the simmering kadhi and let it simmer for another couple of minutes
- Remove from heat and serve garnished with coriander leaves.
