Kadhi is a very simple, easy to make, flavourful and healthy side dish. It is served along with rice or Khichdi in most Gujarati house.
Kadhi’s base is made with yogurt and chick peas flour. To it green Chilli, ginger, curry leaves, salt and sugar are added (Turmeric powder can also be added) along with whole spices like Bay leaf, peppercorns, cloves and cumin.
is a staple diet at my home. We make it at least once a week along with Bateta vatana nu saak (Potato and peas curry).
If you are looking for a flavourful, healthy and easy to make Indian meal try making Baingan Bharta(Minced spicy egg plant)
, along with Vegetable Khichdi and Kadhi. Accompany it with papad, buttermilk, cut onions and roasted green Chilli.
