Methi Kadhi - मेथी कढ़ी (Fenugreek Yogurt Soup)

Hello Friends,


I apologize for missing 2 entries from the roundup yesterday. Please do visit Veggie/Fruit a Month - Avocado event's roundup again to check them out.


Now, here is another one of many versions of kadhi that we prepare in our household. Hope you will enjoy this.


Methi Kadhi - मेथी कढ़ी (Fenugreek Yogurt Soup)




Ingredients
For Kadhi (Gravy)
Dahi (Yogurt) - 2 cups
Water - 2 cups
Besan (Chick Pea Flour) - 2 tbsp
Dhaniya (Coriander) Powder - 1 tsp
Jeera (Cumin) Powder - 1 tsp
Haldi (Turmeric Powder) - 1 tsp
Amchur (Dry Mango Powder) - 1 tsp
Salt - as per taste
For Tempering of Kadhi (Gravy)
Oil - 1 tbsp
Rai (Mustard Seeds) - 1 tsp
Jeera (Cumin Seeds) - 1 tsp
Heeng (Asefoetida) - a pinch
Lahsan (Garlic) - 4 big cloves
Adrakh (Ginger) - 1 inch piece
Hari Mirch (Green Chillies) - 3-4, finely sliced
Fenugreek Leaves - 1 cup, finely chopped
Preparation
  • Mix everything under "For Kadhi" well in a bowl such that there are no lumps left.
  • Now, take a deep and thick bottomed pan and add first 4 items under "For Tempering of Kadhi".
  • Once the seeds start spluttering, add the remaining ingredients under "For Tempering of Kadhi".
  • When nice aroma of ginger/garlic starts coming and methi leaves are slightly wilted, add the yogurt mix in it and mix continuously till the mix starts boiling (A tip here, always take the yogurt out of the fridge at least an hour before you make this so that yogurt is in room temp and doesn't take very long in boiling). This constant stirring step is very important as if not done properly, the yogurt will curdle.
  • Once the kadhi starts boiling, simmer the gas for 4-5 minutes so that it gets cooked well (you can really smell a nice aroma, once it is done, so you will know..lol). 
Serving
Serve it with warm rotis or warm white rice :)
