Try this on a cold winter or a rainy day. It's an excellent comfort food with steaming hot rice.
Natural yoghurt (also called curd, dahi) is made into thick soup all over India. In each region
it has an unique name like Kadhi, Morkolumbu, Majjige Huli, Avial, Takka Kadhi etc.
Ingredients added into this yoghurt base are also quite varied.Vegetables like gourds, leafy
vegetables, gramflour fritters, sundried dumplings and even papads are added to make an
array of tasty kadhis. Hot kadhi can be eaten with Plain steamed rice, Kitchdee, Green peas
(Matar) Pulav, Cumin (Jeera) rice or any breads (Indian or other).
Kadhi simmered with papad pieces is a delightful combination from the region of Rajasthan.
