6 to 8 curry leaves (kadi patta)
2 tsp sugar

1 tsp ghee
1/2 tsp mustard seeds ( rai / sarson)
1/2 tsp cumin seeds (jeera)
a pinch asafoetida (hing)

  5. When the seeds crackle, add the asafoetida and red chillies and sauté on a medium flame for a few seconds.
  6. Add this tempering to the boiling kadhi and cover it immediately (this helps to retain the flavours of the tempering).

  8. Add the coriander, mix well and serve hot.

Handy tips:

    Handy tips:
  1. Ensure the moong dal batter is not very thick nor very thin.
  2. Add a spoonful of the batter to the boiling kadhi and wait for it to float up. If it does not float, it means the batter is too thin. You can add a little besan to the batter and proceed as per the recipe given above.
