I just love Kadhi. chawal. Whenever my mother used to make it. I had bowls of hot kadhi with lots of ghee. The aroma is still there. I really miss Mom. Looking forward to her visit this month. This time I will make kadhi for her. Making it is simple but getting it to the perfection is difficult.

A 2 Z Vegetarian Cuisine said...

Thanks everyone for taking time and commenting...

Suparna, If you have not tried this method of making gatta nu shaak/kadhi..try it..you r sure to like it..and its dam easy to make..

Varunavi,

Making kadhi is an art I would say,it might take some time to master, i too use to make mess while I was learning..for me this tricked worked..just add a bit more of channa flour to yogurt, then add water, while continuously stirring it until you see it has started to boil..You will be all set.
