Kadhi is a traditional gujarati preparation of a wonderful sweet and spicy curd mixture thickened with gram flour, which can be enhanced in many ways using other ingredients like pakoras and koftas. Remember never to boil the kadhi on a high flame as it tends to curdle. Gujarati kadhi goes very well with khichdi.

I have converted this Kadhi into a healthier option by using low fat curds and replacing ghee with oil. Gram flour (besan) has a low GI of 27. The only unhealthy part is the sugar. Not sure how to solve that. You need to cut sugar levels in your experiment!
