Kadhi for Fast; Rajgira Kadhi

vrat kadhi
Kadhi is a widely popular in north India, especially Punjabi homes. Then there is a special Guajarati Kadhi and Rajasthani Kadhi as well. We can savor kadhi everyday. Now you can relish your favorite kadhi during fasting days as well. How? Let's see!

Take all the ingredients that you are allowed to enjoy during fast:






Ingredients
1 cup- dahi (curd)
2 tbsp- rajgira atta (amaranth)
sendha namak
green chilly/red chilly
ginger (if allowed) - we need ginger-chilly paste
coriander leaves
sabut dhaniya
2 cups of water (or more if you want the kadhi more watery)
Roasted almond powder
Jeera (cumin seeds)
Ghee (clarified butter)

Procedure
rajgira kadhi for vrat


  1. Mix curd and singhara atta.
  2. Make sure there aren't any lumps.
  3. Add salt and water. Whisk well.
  4. Dry roast 8-10 almonds. Let them cool and then grind into powder. Usually most recipes use peanut powder, but I always substitute it with almonds.
  5. Take a deep bottom vessel.
  6. Add ghee.
  7. When the ghee is hot, add jeera and sabut dhaniya.
  8. Let them splutter.
  9. Next add ginger-chilly paste (if you are not using ginger, add chilly).
  10. Stir fry.
  11. Now add the dahi batter.
  12. Keep stirring so that it does not curdle.
  13. Keep it on low flame while stirring intermittently.
  14. Add roasted almond powder.
  15. Stir in between. The kadhi will be ready in 10-15 minutes. I kept it longer though.
  16. Enjoy the kadhi for fast with rajgira-kuttu roti.
