Kadhi (Gujrati Style)

Kadhi

I had some sour yogurt at home and had no vegetables. So thought of trying this Khadi, which one of my North Indian friend introduced me to. Its very simple and tasty dish. Can be served with chapati or rice.




Ingredients:
Yogurt – 1 cup, beaten
Water – 3 cups
Chickpea Flour (Besan) – 4 Tbsp
Salt to taste
Turmeric Powder – 1/8 tsp
Ginger – 1/2 tsp grated
Green chilies – 1 to 2 (to taste), finely chopped
For Tempering:
Oil – 2 tsp
Cumin Seeds – 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds – 1/2 tsp
Kasoori Methi - Handful
Asafoetida (Hing) – 1/8 tsp
Curry leaves – 4 - 5 leaves
Coriander leaves chopped - 1 - 2 tbl spn

Method:

1) Take a vessel and mix together Yogurt, Water and besan flour well until there are no lumps.
2) Add Salt, Turmeric Powder, Ginger and Green Chilies.
3) Bring mixture to a boil on medium flame, stirring continuously. Now add kasoori Methi and boil on low flame.
4 )In a separate small pan, heat Oil and Ghee.
5) Add Cumin Seeds, Mustard Seeds once they splutter, add Asafoetida, Curry Leaves and Cilantro.
6) Immediately, add the seasoning to the boiled yogurt mixture and allow it to boil once more.

Cheers!
