Gujarati Kadhi

This is one of my favorite gujarati dish!!! Its made out of yogurt, and its delicious with jeera rice! Yumm!!


2 cups yogurt
4 cups water
2 tbsp gram flour(besan)
2 small green chillies(1 if you like it mildly spiced)
a small piece of ginger
1 tbsp chopped fresh coriander
1 tsp cumin seeds(jeera)
3/4 tsp methi seeds(fenugreek seeds)
a pinch of asefoitida(hing)
3-4 curry leaves(kadhi patta)
3-4 cloves
3-4 pieces cinnamon
salt to taste
sugar(optional, though I LOVE it sweet!! ;) )
1 tbsp clarified butter(ghee)


Put the yogurt, gram flour, water, ginger, chillies, coriander in a blender and blend it well.

In a large pot, put the clarified butter, and on low heat wait for it to melt and warm up. Put the cumin seeds, methi seeds, curry leaves, and asefoitida and let it crack. Once you start hearing the cracking sound, put the mixer in the blender into the pot, and start stirring the mixer. Put salt to taste, and add sugar if you like it with a tinge of sweetness!

The trick to amazing gujarati kadhi is to keep stirring it continuously for 15-20 minutes, until the kadhi starts boiling, and the color changes to a mild yellow. And its ready!! Garnish it with coriander leaves, and have it with jeera rice!:)

Do you put mustard seeds in too? I've been craving gujju kadi for a while, and plan to make some tonight.
