GUJARATI KADHI

KADHI
The Gujarati Kadhi is a hot-sweet concoction and not very thick. It is most loved because of its unique taste and also because of its consistency. You can just drink it. The kadhi goes well with the Khichdi.

Ingredients
Yoghurt - 2 cups
Gram flour (Besan) - 2 tbsp
Ginger – A small piece
Green chillies - 2
Ghee - 2 tbsp
Mustard seeds - 1 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1 tsp
Dry Red chilly- 1 (broken into pieces)
Asafetida – a pinch
Curry leaves – 1 sprig
Salt as per taste
Sugar - 2 tsp
Coriander leaves for garnishing

Method
Grate the ginger and finely chop the chillies, alternatively you can even slice them.
In a vessel, Mix the yogurt and gram flour, ensure that there are no lumps formed, now add the grated ginger, chopped green chillies, curry leaves, sugar and salt. Now mix water and dilute this mixture. The Gujarati Kadhi is not very thick, it is usually very thin. Heat this mixture on low flame till it comes to a boil.
In a pan, heat the ghee, add the mustard seeds and when it begins to crackle, add the cumin seeds. Add the asafetida, red chilli broken into halves, and fry on low heat for a few seconds. Add the curry leaves and then pour this over the Kadhi. Finally garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves before serving.
