Maharashtrian Kadhi

This Sunday was such a break for me from cooking. We decided to meet up at our cousin's place for dinner and it became a sort of potluck dinner. Our cousin is a very enthusiastic cook and tries out various recipes and the dishes always come out so delicious.He made Alu Gobi Adraki and Palak Paneer. Amazing!! and We carried my hubby's Maharashtrian kadhi and Moru Sambar . My contribution was that I made the Puris . Suffice to say, it was a feast for us.


4 tbsp Chickpea flour/ Besan
3 cups yogurt
1 tsp Turmeric powder
1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
2 tsp ginger garlic paste
2 green chillies slit
1 pinch Asafoetida/ hing
4-6 curry leaves
2 tbsp chopped coriander leaves

Combine the besan and yogurt thoroughly in a deep pan.
Add 2 cups water ,salt to taste and Turmeric powder.
Cook over low heat stirring continuously.

Heat oil in a separate pan and add the mustard seeds.
When the seeds begin to splutter, add the ginger garlic paste, hing and curry leaves.
Cook for a minute and pour the sizzling spices into the kadhi.

Mix well and cook, stirring continuously over low heat until the kadhi has thickened slightly.

Remove from heat and serve, garnished with coriander leaves.
Thank you Sanjeev Kapoor for your amazing recipe.
