Kadhi is inseparable from Gujarati cuisine. It is basically 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. This simple dish requires tact and perfection, which comes from practice. Remember never to boil the kadhi on a high flame as it tends to curdle.
