Kadhi

Kadhi

Kadhi is a one pot comfort curry prepared with yoghurt and spices simmered.

From the likes of Punjabi kadhi pakora and Sindhi kadhi of the north and Gujarati and maharashtrian kadhi from the west to morkozhambu or mor kootan from south, each kadhi varies in style, ingredients and taste. There are more varieties but these are a few tried and tasted variations. Kadhi is one of my favorite foods and I can have it anytime!

Turning the humble yoghurt into a delicious dish, here is my take on kadhi:

1 onion sliced

2 garlic cloves finely chopped

1 teaspoon mustard seeds

1 teaspoon Methi (fenugreek) seeds

6-8 curry leaves

1 whole red chilli

Yoghurt

Spices and powders to add to yoghurt-

2 tablespoons besan (gram flour)

1 teaspoon chilli powder

1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder

1 teaspoon coriander cumin powder

1/2 teaspoon garam masala

1/2 teaspoon kasuri Methi

Salt as per taste

Add all the spices and powders as described above to the yoghurt.

Using a hand blender or mixer, mix everything into a smooth blend.

Add oil to a wok and add the mustard seeds.

Once the mustard seeds start spluttering add the Methi seeds and when they start turning darker add the garlic.

Once the garlic turns Golden, add onions curry leaves and whole red chilli. Sauté till onions turn translucent.

Now add the yoghurt blend and cook in medium flame till it comes to a boil.

Once it starts boiling and foaming simmer the gas and keep stirring for 2-3 minutes. Turn off the gas and serve with piping hot rice, chapatis or rotis.
