Kadhi Recipe(Gujarati)

I can never forget the taste of Hotel Surya's kadhi and Rajdhani's khicdi -kadhi in Vadodara. Gujarati Kadhi goes with lots of dishes like Khicdi, roti, paratha , rice or pulav. I simply love khicdi-kadhi combination with papad and pickle. You can prepare simple kadhi or vegetable kadhi.It is also very healthy food preparation and just take 15 mins to prepare.
1/2 cup yogurt
2 tsp gram flour /besan
1 stick of cinnamon
2-3 cloves
1 cardamon whole
1 red chilli whole
1/2 tsp cumin seeds
1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/2 tsp of green chilli and ginger paste
4-5 curry leaves
pinch of asfoetida
jaggery (according to taste)

First of all in vessel take gram flour, yogurt and 1/2 glass of water.
Mix it well with hand blender
Heat oil in pan.
Add cumin seeds, fennel seeds, cardamon, cinnamon, clove, asfoetida, ginger-chilli paste, curry leaves and salt. (Tip:adding salt is very important to let yogurt turn into kadhi and not butter)
Add 1/2 glass of water.
Let it boil for 2-3 mins.
Add yogurt-besan mixture to this.
Mix it well with spatula spoon.
Let it boil for 4-5 mins.
Add water to get consistency like soup.
Finally add jaggery and salt according to taste.
Boil for 7-10 mins and turn off gas.

Serve kadhi with hot khicdi or pulav or roti.
