Kadhi Chawal is one of those dishes which define comfort and mom’s love to me! A delicious way to incorporate some curd in your diet!
Now that I have come back from home I have yet another mom’s special with me and this time its kadhi chawal. I have already told you guys how much just how much I love the kadhi that mom makes and now here is the recipe. I bet you can’t make it as well as my mom 🙂
There is something about kadhi chawal that defines comfort to me! Whether it is those delicious pakoras which mom puts into them or just the simple spices, I don’t know. Kadhi has so many forms all over India. Isn’t it amazing how we all have used curd in some form or the other in our diets. While most of the world has just started to realise the amazing benefits of having curd everyday, Indians definitely have had it as an integral part of their diet since time immemorial!
Whether it is the coconut based mor kuzhambu or the jaggery laced kadhi from Gujarat, each is so unique in its taste and so delicious! Have them with rice and a piece of papad, and trust me, your meal is just so perfect!
I have so many fond memories of Kadhi Chawal growing up as a child. It was one dish I would always look forward to. Whenever mom made it, I used to wait to take some rice on the plate, add a ladle full of kadhi with some pakoras on it and dig into the plate with gusto. I was one of those kids who loved eating kadhi chawal any time. In fact, I am still like that. And just before I give you the recipe to the traditional kadhi, do try making some Moongra kadhi if you can lay your hands on fresh moongra. You will be licking your plate clean 🙂
