Kadhi-Chawal uuummm...

Kadhi is one of the best dish I love from Gujarati cuisine. It is a spicy dish whose thick gravy is based on Besan and contains vegetable pakoras(I used potato), to which sour yogurt is added to give it little sour taste. I love it with simple plain rice.

Onion - 1 Medium
Potato -1 Medium
Baking powder - 1/4 tsp
Baking Soda - a pinch

  1. Chop the onion, chilli and potatoes finely.
  2. Mix all the ingredients of pokoras, adding water very gradually to get a thick soft paste of dropping consistency.
