Kadhi is one of the most famous of all the Gujarati recipes. A typical Gujarati meal consists of kadhi, rotis, rice, sabzi or shaak and homemade pickles.

Make the kadhi by whisking 2 cups of sour yogurt in a large bowl until it is smooth. Stir in 2 tablespoons of graham flour, and blend the mixture until it is again smooth. Add 4 cups of water, one-fourth tablespoon of asafoetida, 1 tablespoon of salt, 1 teaspoon of chili powder and one-fourth teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Sweeten the mixture to taste with 2 or 3 tablespoons of sugar, and blend it thoroughly.

In a heavy saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil, and add 3 to 4 whole red chillies, 8 to 10 curry leaves and 2 tablespoons of mustard seeds. When the mustard seeds start crackling, stir in the yogurt mixture, increase the heat and bring the contents to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 15 to 20 minutes. Ladle the kadhi into bowls, garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
