Gujarati Kadhi


Gujarati Kadhi is one of the most delicious, sweet-sour yogurt kadhi made with chickpea flour and yogurt and tempered with spices. It is basically a yogurt-based gravy dish that goes well with Khichdi, basmati rice, or soft phulkas.

This is one of my personal favorites, and the first time I had tasted it in a kathiyawadi restaurant. Since then I love making this whenever I get bored of making Sambar and Rasam. This Kadhi is an essential part of Gujarati cuisine. They like it to be thinner, use less began, unlike Punjabi kadhi which is thicker in consistency.

One thing to be kept in mind is to never cook the kadhi on very high flame and also use room temperature yogurt...so the kadhi won't split or curdle.

This simple recipe involves a lot of aromatic spices like cinnamon, cloves, cumin seeds, asafoetida which are all so good for digestion and light on the stomach. They also give a distinct and unique flavor to Kadhi and taste awesome without onion and garlic. With just a few ingredients, you can make this delicious kadhi in no time. So let's jump to the recipe.


INGREDIENTS
:
Chickpea Flour 1/2 cup
Yogurt 1 cup
Dried Red chili 1
Curry leaves a handful
Cumin seeds 11/2tsp
Asafoetida 1/2 tsp
Mustard seeds 11/2 tsp
Cinnamon sticks small 2
Cloves 4-5
Turmeric powder 1/2 tsp
Methi seeds 8-10
Ginger Green chili paste 1 tsp
Water 2 cups
Ghee 2tbsp
Salt and sugar to taste

INSTRUCTION:
1.In a big bowl, whisk both chickpea flour and the yogurt together till they blend well. Add 2 cups of water and whisk again. Keep it aside.


2.Heat a pan, add ghee, mustard seeds, and let it splutter. Now add cumin seeds, asafoetida, curry leaves, dried red chili, methi seeds, cinnamon, cloves, turmeric powder and Ginger-chilli paste. Stir well and let it cook for a minute.


3.Now add the Besan yogurt batter and let it cook for 8 to 10 minutes on medium flame. Add salt and sugar, stir well, let it cook for 3 more minutes.


4.Lastly garnish with coriander leaves. Serve with Gujarati kadhi, rice, or roti.

I hope you will like this soothing kadhi and make this again and again since it is so delicious. Please comment me your feedback in the comments section below. Also would love to connect on Instagram @archanasvegfoodchronicles.

Eggless Brazilian Cheese Bread

Pao de Queijo (pronounced as pown -deh- kay-zho) aka Brazilian Cheese Bread is a small baked cheese bun, a popular snack and breakfast food that originated in the state Minas Gerais of Brazil. These are bread/buns usually made with tapioca flour, milk, oil, cheese, salt, and egg/egg substitute. Since I don't use eggs in my baking I have used vinegar instead. These are soft, chewy and so addictive. I love to make healthy bakes from all around the world. Inspired by this YouTube video by Something Dave and I gave it a try as it was an eggless version.These came out so well. These are super simple and easy to make with just five ingredients. A must try because they are gluten-free, contain no yeast, no baking powder, yet so soft and cheesy😋 I had never tried baking with tapioca flour...and found it so interesting to bake with. The dough is too sticky and you will need some extra flour to be dusted to make balls out of it. I have used plant-based pa

Huli pudi (Sambar Powder) North Karnataka style

Huli Pudi is one of the authentic traditional Sambar powders which has been passed on from generation to generation. This is specially made in North Karnataka. There is a wide variety of sambar powders not only within Karnataka but within South India. Each region has it's own way of adding ingredients and making them. In North Karnataka brahmin families, you can usually see two types of Sambars, firstly 'Saaru ' which can also be called Rasam with Toor dal. The consistency is thin and usually made with Tur dal and tomatoes or Tamarind. The other one is 'Huli' which is thicker in consistency and usually includes some veggies or greens. So here I am sharing the Sambar powder that is used to make a typical Huli. This is so unique and different from South Karnataka Sambar powders. The main difference being the omission of urad dal and Tur dal. This powder is just made with dried spices. This can be made in advance in large quantities/batches and stored in a
