Indian cuisine envelops a range of spicy, flavourful curries. A typical Indian meal consists of at least one curry to be paired with rice or biryani, and breads like roti, paratha or naan. Kadhi is a curd-based curry that is made in a variety of forms in different parts of the country. The tangy dish complements any rice dish perfectly. Though, kadhi can also be savoured with roti – it really depends on individual taste. The curd curry contains fried balls of besan (Bengal gram flour), which soften after being doused in the curry. The flavour of these besan balls goes perfectly with the light, flowy curd curry. The conventional form of kadhi is hugely popular all over India, but in certain areas slight variations of this dish are also seen.
We've discovered an interesting variation of kadhi that retains the essence of the tangy curry but is a bit unique at the same time. This is the recipe of potato, onion and peas kadhi. Surprised? Don't be. Apparently, this form of kadhi is made in many households, especially in North India, given the long-standing love for potatoes there!
Needless to say, this curry is thicker because of onions but it still tastes heavenly as ever. So, let's see how can you make potato, onion and peas kadhi or should we say aloo, pyaaz aur matar ki kadhi.
