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

I used:


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

For tempering:

Oil- 1 tablespoon
Mustard- 1 teaspoon
Cumin seeds- 1 teaspoon
Red chillies-2 , broken into bits
Asafoetida powder- a pinch

Coriander leaves to garnish

  1. 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.]
  2. In a pan put in this blended mixture, curry leaves and bring to a boil.
  3. Simmer for 5- 10 minutes till the raw smell of besan disappears.Add more water if needed.
  4. Meanwhile, heat a small pan with oil and put in the ingredients for tempering.
  5. When it splutters,pour this over the simmering kadhi and let it simmer for another couple of minutes
  6. Remove from heat and serve garnished with coriander leaves.
