What I miss the most in this cool days ? Those days when I was able to enjoy hot served food by mom on dining table , and absolutely , I didn't have to do anything at all, other than enjoying delicious meals. :D . Gone are those days, but by Mom's grace I am able to make those dishes on my own today, and well 24/7 helpline is there :) so I can call her anytime when I am stucked with any recipe :).
Making kadhi is fun for me, as I like it very much, just the idea of having kadhi as part of my meal makes me happy, so preparing it anytime is no trouble for me :)
2 Cups little Sour Curd ,
4 tsp Besan ,
1 1/2 teaspoon Ginger-Garlic paste ,
2 Green Chillies, finely chopped ,
1/2 tablespoon Ghee,
1 teaspoon cumin seeds,
7-8 fresh curry leaves.
salt to taste ,
a pinch of Asafoetida ,
a pinch of Turmeric Powder(optional , I haven't used it for making kadhi).
coriander leaves to garnish
Beat the curd and add two cups of water. Add the besan and mix them well with a hand blender, make mixute such that it will not have any lumps there.
Take a kadhai or thick bottomed saucepan. Heat the ghee in it and crackle the cumin seeds add curry leaves also. Next add chopped green chillies and ginger garlic paste. Pour in the curd mixture,boil the curd mixture on slow heat and stir constinuosly. Add salt and sugar as per taste , and remove from heat when it starts boiling.Sprinkle coriander on top and serve hot.
It tastes best when accompanied with any kind of rice , pulao or Khichadi.
I had it with Jeera rice accompanied with fresh vegetable salad .
There are many different ways by which we can make kadhi. It can be made by adding jaggary in place of sugar. It also can be made without adding sugar or jaggary at all. I normally do not use turmeric powder to make kadhi this way.
When I make it without sugar and little spicier I add turmeric powder to it. I also add 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder to it when I make it that way, but its a totally different way to make kadhi , and also final taste of it is different totally.
What I found after I came here in Pune , that It is very popular to serve spicy kadhi with pakora . That is also the other way kadhi can be prepared and used. Some other time I will also add those recipes…. Till then stay Tuned…and Happy blogging. :)
