Like many other dishes, kadhi differs from region to region. This Sindhi Kadhi is a rather special one as it is made using tomatoes. Tomatoes are very low in calories and provide plenty of vitamin A which required for a glowing skin and healthy vision. I assure you that your family will relish this tangy kadhi with a touch of sweetness provided by jaggery.

Healthy as tomatoes are healthy and it taste like a Rasam. It's spicy, so be prepared for a bit of fire or increase the jaggery to cut the spice level.

good idea.....to save besan from getting burnt,(for new cooks) it can be added to the puree itself

Awesome recipe! This is something really unusual and never heard of. I tried this recipe and it turned out to be simply amazing and delicious. I never imagined that we can make something like kadhi using tomatoes and that too with such less oil. WOW! Keep up the good work Tarla ji.
