Gujrati Kadhi – Thermomix

Kadhi (pronounced kadd hee) comes in various forms.  This recipe comes from Gujrati and is quite a popular dish.  What I love about this is how easy it is make, unlike the North Indian kadhi, which is a labour of love.

This is an easy gluten free recipe which would also be delicious as soup, eaten with a side serve of garlic naan.

Tips:  For crunch and texture, I like to add Haldiram’s plain boondi over my kadhi just before eating.  You can add it prior if you prefer a softer texture as the boondi will soak up some of the kadhi.
