Monsoons call for homely, warm and simple meals. The unbridled joy one feels while eating their favourite comfort food is inexplicable. And it looks like Maheep Kapoor agrees with us on this. The Fabulous Lives Of Bollywood Wives star shared a delectable picture of her simple, home-cooked meal that screams warmth and comfort. Maheep treated herself to some hot kadhi and long-grain, fragrant white rice. Also, do not miss the dollop of achaar. The photo of the humble meal reminded us of why simple, home-cooked food is always a winner. She posted the picture on her Instagram Stories along with a caption that read, “Kadhi chawal and achaar (kadhi rice and pickle).” She also included the hashtags "fav" and "comfort food" in the caption.
Kadhi is a thick, mellow, flavoured curry made using gram flour (besan) and curd, which gives it a slightly sour tang. The dish is believed to have originated in Rajasthan and is popularly served with rice. Each state has its own variation of the dish.
