Punjabi kadi

Punjabi Kadi
Today's recipe is Punjabi kadi, learnt this from an Punjabi aunt who was an amazing cook. This is a yogurt based sabji/daal variety eaten with roti's traditionally pakoda's are made with besan and added to kadi. But today due to lack of time made kadi without the pakoda/dumplings, again this can be prepared in less then few 10 minutes. Tastes best when eaten warm


2 cups dahi/Yogurt/ curd
2 tbsps besan/ gram flour
1/2 onion cut vertically
3 garlic cloves chopped finely
2 tbsp garlic chopped finely
1 tbsp kasoori methi
2-3 red chilies
8-10 curry leaves
1 tbsp jeera
1/2 tspn methi seeds
salt according to taste

1. heat a tbsp of oil, (traditionally ghee is used) add jeera, methi seeds, ginger, garlic , kasoori methi, haldi, r.chilies and curry leaves
2. add finely cut onions and saute till these turn translucent
3. in a separate bowl mix yogurt, besan and chili powder with water to make it a consistency of thick lassi
4. add the above mixture to sauted onions add salt and mix well
5. allow to boil till about 5 minutes or you see big bubbles

Serve hot with puhlka/roti's very delicious and nutritious too
