Methi Kadhi

Kadhi a traditional dish serves in various ways in all over the India. Kadhi is nothing but a thick gravy of yogurt and besan(chick peas flours). And in this gravy you can add vegetables pakora(fritters) as well as besan pakoras(Chick peas fritters),Okra,potatoes and many more things as you wish in your ways.But taste wise and preparation wise it may differ very little from South to North ,East to West. Preparation is more or less same. It can be served like chilled or hot as your choice. Its very easy to prepare also. I love this kadhi whatever it is.But for this time I made it with Fenugreek leaves (Methi Leaves). It goes nicely with homemade Paratha as well as Roti also.Now For the Upcoming event hosted by Meena I am sharing this recipe. Hope all will Love this.

Take a look on the recipe …
