Quick Kadhi

I have always loved home made kadhi. But the very fact that I will have to fry pakoras for it, made me never try it more than a few special days. So when I started this search for under 20 mins recipes, I knew this sure has to have my moms recipe for a quick kadhi. We lovingly call it chatti chukao (cant explain that to all of you, its too personal ;)). Lets just say that we used to feel so bad requesting our mom to make this till we realize how easy it is. It tastes delicious even though it doesn't have pakoras, it has what requires to make a delicious kadhi. So enjoy this  recipe from my mom which you can make in 10-15 mins.

Ingredients (makers for 2):
  • 10 tsp yogurt
  • 7-8 tbps water
  • half small onion slit into long slices
  • 3/4 inch ginger sliced into small pieces
  • 1-2 pcs of garlic sliced into pcs
  • salt- 1 tsp
  • haldi- 1/4 tsp
  • garam masala- 1/4 tsp
  • hing- 1/4 tsp
  • ghee- 2 tsp
  • besan- 1 1/2 tsp
  • sauf powder
  • methra- crushed
  • cilantro for garnishing
  • In a pan heat ghee, once hot add ginger, garlic and onions. Then add hing and saute till onions turn brown.
  • In parallel, whip  yogurt, besan and water.

  •  Once onions are brown, add yogurt blend to pan. Keep stirring.
  • Add haldi, garam masala, saunf, methra and slowly bring the mixture to boil.

  • Now simmer for 2 mins or till gravy thickens. Make sure you dont thicken too much since once the kadhi cools it gets little bit more thicker on its own.
  • Now add salt and keep stirring. Dont add salt before it or it can spoil the kadhi.
  •  Once done add cilantro. Enjoy delicious quick kadhi with rice. Hope you like it the way we did.
