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 love kadhi and would love to try to make its different variations I make kadhi in the same manner as above but in addition to ginger and green I also add garlic and one more addition is dry roasted coconut powder. It really tastes awesome.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Esha, We are glad you like the recipes. Kadhi at times curdled if it has less besan or the besan has not been mixed well or also if boiled on a high flame and not stirred well.
