Kadhi is an authentic curd based curry made in the state of Gujarat. For this month's SShhhh secretly cooking , we are cooking from Gujarat. Mayuri Patel of gave me sour curd and coriander leaves. I decided to make this kadhi with the secret ingredients.

2 tbs vegetable oil
1/2 tsp cumin seeds 
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
2 sprig curry leaves
Asafoetida / Hing
1/4 tsp Fenugreek seeds
5 Dry chillies


  In a bowl , whisk together Besan flour , curd , salt , ginger paste , green chilli paste , turmeric powder , sugar and water. Make sure to mix without any lumps.

Heat a pan and add the oil .

Add in the mustard seeds and let it crackle.

Now , add the cumin seeds , fenugreek seeds , curry leaves , hing and dry chillies. Add the besan mixture and let it boil for five minutes along with required salt  and then simmer for ten minutes.

Take off from flame and add the chopped coriander leaves.

Serve the kadhi with steamed rice or roti.
