5. Now is the next step let’s learn how to make kadhi recipe which is served with the khichdi recipe6. Now in a bowl we will take one Cup Sour curd, 1/4th cup gram flour, taste of doing ginger and two green chillies and we will add the salt according to teste, now you have to whisk it now you can use a whisk for that, you can use a hand blender if you have one or you can even add it to a mixture grinder if you want,

7. That is not problem either, the main funda is that there should not be any lumbs of curd or gram flour and it should have a very smooth texture, so remember this you have to whisked it nicely and got a smooth texture,

8. Now we will add water to this I am adding three times the quantity of the curd that you have taken so I am adding three cup of water, after adding the water whisk it again nicely so as to mix the curd gram flour and water nicely with one another,



9. So my mixture is ready there is no lumps and our mixture for kadhi recipe is nicely formed, now we will transfer this mixture in a cooking pot, then turn the stove on, keep it on a high flame and while stirring in between bring this kadhi to a boil,

10. Once the sol kadhi comes to a boil and lower the flame to lowest and let the Simmer on low flame, now we will prepare for the tempering on another side,

11. Now we will take is small fry Pan for tempering, now we will add two tablespoon of the ghee and the heat the ghee nicely then to it you will add half table spoon cumin seeds, 1/4 tablespoon mustard seeds, one piece of cinnamon stick, 2.3 cloves, 2,3 dried Red chillies, 1/4th tsp asafoetida, 8 to 10 Curry leaves, 1/4th teaspoon Fenugreek seeds and add the tempering to the kadhi,



12. And cover it with the lid, and keep it covered for 2 minutes to let the flavour of the tempering seep into the sol kadhi,

13. Some people also add one star anise to the tempering so if you want you can add that too, after 1 minute lift the lid and mix the kadhi recipe nicely with the tempering, after mixing the kadhi I am adding one table spoon jaggery for sweetness,

14. Gujarati kadhi is sweet and sour, stir it nicely so that the jaggery dissolve well into our kadhi, after 2,3 minutes taste this kadhi, now adjust the salt and jaggery you can keep the sweetness as per your preference, and stir it nicely,

16. Some homes prefer is slightly runnier gujarati kadhi whereas some homes prefer slightly thicker curry, you can do that adjustment as per your preference, according to my preference thicker consistency of the gujarati kadhi is perfect, now lastly we will add some freshly chopped coriander leaves to the gujarati kadhi, and mix it nicely and you will see that you are Gujarati kadhi is ready,

17. So Gujarati kadhi making is a very easy, remember that use sour curd to get that sourness in teste, and if you are using fresh curd then the difference between that you wont get the tartness in teste, and Gujarati kadhi should be sweet and sour in taste so try to use sour curd for this recipe,

18. The ratio of the curd to water is 1: 3 so use 3 cup of water for one cup of curd use that ratio for perfect consistency,

Now the rice and lentils that I hade left for soaking have soaked nicely,

22. Once the pressure settle check the whistle and carefully open the cooker, now you will see that your dal khichdi the rice and lentils have perfectly cooked, stir it nicely to mix the rice and lentils within themselves and lightly get mashed too,

23. If you prefer khichdi thicker than this then use 5 cup of t water instead of 4cup, if you prefer a runnier khichdi, then even at this stage you can add some hot water to adjust the consistency, but I like this consistency so I use only 4 cop of water, so we have got perfect consistency, our Gujarati khichdi is also ready let’s plate it,

Believe me this recipe is soothing calm and comforting, that even if I am not mood of eating but if this is on the table then I definitely eat it, along with it some papad and then eat the dal khichdi and kadhi with your hands and than drink kadhi from the bowl,
