Gujarathi Kadhi Recipe

As you all know I have been away from blogging for some time now. This is because we relocated for good reasons to our hometown, Bangalore. As I write this post my mind is still reminding me every moment spent there in Ahmedabad, with those special memories attached with my little bundle of joy: my Son :) Gujarathi Kadhi It has been a very sweet place to live with family; I will treasure longing memories and have carried them along with me. When we moved in to Ahmedabad my son was just two and a half months old, today he grew up to be two years old in this beautiful city. Though we were in Hyderabad for a while, Ahmedabad has been very special place for us as we have enjoyed every bit of our son’s budding stages in this city. Here’s where he first crawled, smiled, laughed, danced, stood up, took few steps ahead, spoke those funny little words, and what more should I add? There were many such firsts and this has been a wonderful roller coaster ride with loads of fun which we liked thoroughly. I have come across a lot of Gujarati delicacies during our stay in this beautiful city. Some of them which I liked are Dabeli, Khamman, Kadhi, Sukhadi, Jalebis, Papdi, Lauki Thepla and many more of these kinds. I am sure some of you would have known them. I have learnt many such recipes and would be more than happy to share with you all at my space. I am also sure that you all will try them and like it as I did. For now let’s learn how to prepare Gujarati Kadhi which is one of the staple gravy dish in Gujarat. Gujarathi Kadhi Gujarati Kadhi is thin gravy made using curd/yogurt as the main ingredient. This yogurt based gravy is quick to prepare and goes well with plain rice or pulkas.  Usually, sugar or jaggery is added in most of the Gujarati dishes and this gives a unique taste to the dish. When I tasted this Gujarati Kadhi for the first time in my friends place, I just loved it. It is a light gravy dish simmered with some mild spices which can be made in few minutes. Gujarati Kadhi tastes yummy even without sugar or jaggery.
