Gujarati Kadhi|Side Dish For Roti

       Gujarati kadhi-is a yogurt based sweet and spicy curry with chickpea flour along with spices and tempered with ghee.Its an authentic Gujarati preparation served along with phulkhas,roti,kichdi etc.Even though there are varieties of kadhi's like Punjabi kadhi,rajathani kadhi.This Gujarati kadhi has it unique flavours and taste.If you have some leftover curd or at times when there is no vegetable available this Gujarati kadhi comes to rescue..
     My landlord is Gujarati and she makes many yummy Gujarati dishes, i never tried to make any of them..few days back when i wanted to make something with homemade curd which got little curdled not smooth, i thought about making this kadhi.This recipe is adapted from tarladalal but altered to our taste buds..
    This Gujarati kadhi is the base of any other kadhi recipe like kadhi pakora,kadhi bhindi,methi kadhi etc.This kadhi resembles few of the south Indian dishes like Moru curry a yogurt based curry
 with ground coconut and spices and a andhra yogurt curry menthi majjiga which is a tempered yogurt gravy.I love both these south Indian curries alike when it comes to rice. This Gujarati kadhi we had with methi thepla, its the best combo ever..If you want to have it for rice add more green chilies and avoid adding sugar to it.You should think of adding red chilies too while tempering.
Believe me its so tasty and will be ready in just 15-20 minutes.

    1. Yes, lovely preparation ..Surely try and let me know..

  3. For 2 and half cups of yogurt mixture , 1 tsp. of besan is very less. you need atleast 2-3 tbsp of besan to thicken kadhi, otherwise boiling for 30 minutes also won't thicken it.

    1. Some people use more besan.But we liked it the way it was..I will make some edit in the recipe for people who want thickest kadhi.
