Gujarati Kadhi

Kadhi is typically made with besan (gram flour) in many Indian states. It is made in Punjab with some pakoda and sour dahi when the preparation comes out thicker, while in Gujarat it is made slightly sweet and is more fluid and lighter version. We also have other versions like sindhi kadhi , boondi kadhi and many more. Today I made Gujarati Kadhi for lunch and served it with some rice and it was a highly satisfying experience. You don’t need to be from the state of Gujarat to make this preparation, just use this Gujarati Kadhi Recipe and enjoy any of your main meals.
