A classic Gujarati Kadhi recipe for you:


For Kadhi:
- 1 cup yogurt (sour or slightly tangy)
- 2 tbsp gram flour (besan)
- 2 cups water
- 1/2 tsp turmeric powder
- Salt to taste
- A pinch of asafoetida (hing)
- 1 tsp ginger paste
- 2-3 green chilies, chopped
- Curry leaves
- 2 cups water

For Tempering (Vaghar):
- 2 tbsp ghee
- 1/2 tsp mustard seeds
- 1/2 tsp cumin seeds
- 1/2 tsp fenugreek seeds (methi seeds)
- 1-2 dried red chilies, broken
- Few curry leaves
- A pinch of asafoetida (hing)

For Garnishing:
- Chopped coriander or cilantro leaves


1. In a mixing bowl, whisk the yogurt until smooth. Add gram flour (besan) and continue whisking until no lumps remain.

2. Gradually add water to the yogurt mixture, whisking continuously to create a smooth consistency. Make sure there are no lumps.

3. Heat a large pot and pour the yogurt mixture into it. Add turmeric powder, salt, asafoetida, ginger paste, chopped green chilies, and curry leaves. Mix well.

4. Cook the mixture on medium heat, stirring occasionally. Be careful not to let it boil over.

5. Meanwhile, in a separate pan, heat ghee for tempering. Add mustard seeds and let them splutter. Then add cumin seeds, fenugreek seeds, dried red chilies, curry leaves, and a pinch of asafoetida.

6. Once the tempering is ready, pour it into the simmering kadhi mixture. Stir well.

7. Allow the kadhi to simmer for about 20-25 minutes, stirring occasionally. The kadhi should thicken slightly and the raw taste of besan should disappear.

8. Taste and adjust the seasoning if needed.

9. Once the kadhi is cooked and thickened, turn off the heat.

10. Garnish with chopped cilantro leaves.

11. Serve the Gujarati Kadhi hot with plain rice, khichdi or roti.

Gujarati Kadhi is a comforting and tangy yogurt-based soup that is often served as a main dish with rice. The tempering of spices adds a burst of flavour to this traditional recipe. Enjoy the delightful combination of sweet and sour flavours in this classic Gujarati dish!

*Optional: You may add sugar or jaggery to taste while it the kadhi is boiling. Offer it to Sri Krishna and enjoy prasad!

Hari Bol!
