techi-cooking — Kadhi (कढ़ी)

11 Dec

Kadhi as wiki puts it, is a traditional North Indian dish like soup that is eaten with rice and roti.

Now, Being a Corporate slave … cooking after work is real pain in the neck, specially when u come home @8PM. But making a kadi is comparatively simpler than making any curry … but it asks for a lot of your time.


This Monday {5 weeks back} i tried my hand on kadhi, fortunately for my roomies , it turned out fine …

As Gyan baantne se badhta hai … so here’s my recipe …

Browse through your fridge and kitchen racks and get these on your slab (i.e. ingredients)…

1. besan (chickpea flour)

2. dahi (Curd)/ (butter milk)

3. haldi (Turmeric powder)

4. lal mirch (red chilli powder)

5. Ghee

6. pakode/boondi (optional)

now this is how i made kadhi…

Pakora :-

got pakode from market after getting back form work … its quit easy to get them in hyd … but make sure u buy dal ke pakode not the rice one.


take besan {75 gm}, vegetables : onion, green chili (optional) {two each}, water, salt, red chili powder, garam masala (optional). mix them well n make it thick. then boil the oil and u know how to make pakoras and don’t forget to slip some down ur throat.

Kadhi :-

then take curd {100 gm} then mix {200ml} water (i had the buttermilk {300 gm} in fridge when i made butter out of cream u can use it also) add two-three spoon full of besan and quarter spoon of turmeric powder. Now you have a very light yellow colored mixture with you. Put it on the burner, mix some salt and keep stirring till yellow color of kadi appers. Keep tasting it to make sure nothing went wrong. Now drop the the pakora’s if u n friends have not finished them by now.  Stir it for one more minute and then take it off the burner.

Its not finished yet … the most important part … mmm.. actually the second most important part is left … it called Chounk (छोंक) I donno wht is it called in English.

Chounk :-

Take a small pan, add two table spoon of oil and put it on the burner. Now add 1/4th spoon of each Cumin Seeds (जीरा), mustard seeds (राई), asafetida (हींग) and coriander seed powder (धनिया पाउडर), few curry leaves (कढ़ी पत्ता), ½ spoon red chili powder and garam masala{if available}. If हींग is not available you can use garlic instead … work like a charm.

If you start feeling like sneezing then mix the mixture with the kadi peacefully resting on your slab.

Your kadhi is ready to serve now, garnish it with the coriander leaves or just eat the damn thing up.

PS :- Kadhi doesn’t look very delicious from the pic, just because of the camera limitations.

PS :– This may not be the perfect way of making kadi … but worked owwkay for me.
