Unique Kadhi Recipes From Healthy Recipes by Homemakers

Let's Eat Kadhi! 

Nani -dadi ki recipes 

Once again, it's time to revive our nani-dadi ki kahaniyan, nuskhe, and recipes. It's not for nothing that curd or kadhi is quintessential to every state in India. It is prepared in different ways and forms in different parts of India. In our endeavor to learn more about the recipes of traditional Indian kitchens, let's dig into the KADHI today. It's light on your tummy, delectable for the taste buds, and a favorite with everyone. Of course, it's one of the healthiest ways to enjoy a summer meal. I am CRAZY for Punjabi kadhi. My bhabhi (Kiranjeet Kaur) makes the best I have tasted thus far. Please share your kadhi recipe from your region. Whether you are from Punjab, Haryana, Gujarat, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, Andhra, or any Indian region/state, please bring to us your traditional Kadhi/Ambli recipe. Different regions different recipes - all are unique in their own way. The kadhi we make in Punjab is different from what I eat in Delhi. I love both versions.

I invited Healthy Recipes by Homemakers members to share their different kadhi entries. Here are two of them.

This post also reminds me of my friend Ritu Mendiratta's gatte ki kadhi, which is quite unique and yummy. One try is a must for kadhi lovers.

One of the sweetest persons I have met in the virtual world, Hiral Gosalia shares her signature style Bhindi ki kadhi recipe. I can relate it to dahi bhindi of Odisha, though the preparation and masalas are different.

2.add dhania powder, salt & haldi powder. 

3. Boil it for 8 to 10 minutes with continuous stirring.

8.Add hara dhania in kadhi and cook kadhi for 1min. Remove it from the heat and serve hot with rice or roti or eat it alone. Enjoy. 

Note: 1. I use fresh dahi for kadhi as I don't like sour taste.

3. In the same way, I make baingan kadhi. Add baingan sabzi instead of bhindi sabzi.

But hubby doesn't find them interesting enough to relish them. Yes, I am not joking. He loves boondi ladoos. So I have never tried making besan ladoos before. This Diwali, I wanted to give my favorite ladoos a try. But yes, the health freak in me questioned whether I was really prepared to give in my health goals to relish my favorite besan ladoos. Then the thought of giving a twist to these ladoos struck my imagination. The rest is history - the besan ladoos use just 1 tbsp of ghee (clarified butter) with no SUGAR.

To my surprise, when I offered hubby to taste them, he said "these are really good." Need I ask for more? But
