About Gujrati Kadhi | Flavoured Yogurt Curry Recipe

Flavoured yogurt curry that comes from the colourful state of Gujarat can be included as a soup, starter or main course. The Gujarati kadhi is little different from the Punjabi, Sindhi or Maharashtrian Kadhi that usually comes with bhajiya or pakoda. Gujrati kadhi is warm, mildly sweet and extremely warm to the palate and the digestive system. The consistency is not as thick as those regular kadhis, it's thin and the sweetness comes by adding either sugar or jaggery. Flavoured with ginger, green chilies, clove and cinnamon and tempered with curry leaves, mustard seeds and broken dry red chili, comes with a garnish of fresh chopped green coriander. The curry/kadhi goes perfect with steamed rice, methi thepla or our humble tawa chapati. Perfect meal for a hot summer afternoon!
