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.

Do millets contain anti-nutrients? Yes, they do. In fact, all whole grains, including oats, contain phytates, which bind to minerals and make their absorption difficult for the body.  Soaking is the first step toward reducing anti-nutrients from millets. Soak for at least 6-8 hours to make digestion easier. Discard the soaked water and then proceed to the next step of cooking.
