Who does not like tangy, lip-smacking kadhi? Here is a tangier, more tantalizing version made of tomato purée (instead of dahi), thickened with besan, and spiced up with an assortment of pungent ingredients.

The order of adding ingredients, and the duration of cooking, need to be maintained in order to achieve the perfect consistency. Serve hot with rice for a homely meal that never fails to delight.

Tangy.. creamy.. and scrumptiously palatable... this kadhi can be also enjoyed by it self.. and truly it reminds me of the tomato saar that i have had down south.. great indulgence!!!
