Gujrati Kadhi is a dish that is very simple to cook but great to taste. In this recipe, yogurt, gram flour, and water are mixed to make a thick mixture to which a tempering of green chillies, ginger, and asafoetida is added. The resultant curry or kadhi is mildly spicy, sweet, and tangy. 

There are a lot of variations to this dish, depending upon region to region. The Sindhi kadhi and Punjabi kadhi are thicker, and Rajasthani kadhi is spicy.

Gujarati Kadhi is a great side dish that greatly enhances the taste of traditional Indian meals. It can be eaten on its own or served with steaming hot rice.
