Summer is almost here, and we are making almost every necessary change in our diet to make it season friendly. Summer brings along scorching heat, sweat and irritation that often slows down our ability to metabolise and digest food. These factors further lead to several gut-related problems. This is why we prefer going for light and comforting meals that are not only easy to digest, but also helps cool us down. One such popular summer recipe is kadhi. A light, soupy curry based with besan and yogurt, kadhi is all we need to put together a light summer meal. What we like the most about kadhi is it gives us rooms to experiment. If you explore, you will find a unique kadhi recipe from every region of India - there's the classic Punjabi kadhi pakoda, Maharashtrian kadhi and Sidhi kadhi. Then there's summer-special mango kadhi and tamatar kadhi too. Trust us, options are many and you will fall for each recipe time and again.
We recently came across another delicious variation of kadhi recipe and thought of sharing with you. It's a kadhi made with kokum and coconut milk. Sounds delicious; right? This recipe also includes besan, hing and some basic spices to add that zing to the dish. And it can be a great option for the ones who avoid milk and other dairy products in their diet (here we replace yogurt with coconut milk). The recipe has been shared by food vlogger Manjula Jain on her YouTube channel 'Manjula's kitchen'. Let's check out.
