Sindhi Kadhi -Steamed Rice with Sweet Boondi & Sev

 

Gluten Free and vegan Sindhi Kadhi is a delicious dish that is cooked in most Sindhi homes on regular basis, specially on Sunday’s.

The whole family sits together to relish this along with Aloo tuk/Potato tuk or some pakodas/Bhajiya to be served on side.

The combination of soupy, spicy & tangy Sindhi Kadhi with Steamed Rice and Sweet Boondi & Sev is so delectable, that you won’t stop yourself eating.
a bowl full of this in a go.

 

Sindhi Kadhi/kadi with 1 main ingredient :

One main ingredient besan(gram flour) is used to make Sindhi Kadhi. It is roasted to perfection and then it’s cooked with mix of vegetables and tamarind pulp is used to give it a required tang.

Variations of Sindhi Kadhi/kadi :

However many Sindhi’s make Kadhi/kadi with only tomatoes. But the method of making Sindhi Kadhi/ kadi,which I am sharing here is authentic one.

Traditionally this Sindhi Kadhi/kadi is served with steamed rice and Sweet Boondi mixed with namkeen/salty thin Sev. Above all, Aloo tuk/Patate ja tuk as side dish is a must to be served along with kadhi.

Therefore, when you take a bite, by mixing Kadhi rice followed by Sweet Boondi & Sev, the burst of flavours from it, will do a happy dance in your mouth.

I sometimes make Aloo bhajia/pakoda along with Sindhi Kadhi/kadi.

Similarly you may like to try other Sindhi style recipes  Sindhi style Pakode ki SabziPotli wala Achaar/pickle, and Soyabean curry.

 

Here’s my platter served along with Sindhi kadhi. It consists fried Aloo bhindi, Aloo bhajia/Potato fritters, rice, sweet boondi and Sev along with Dhania pudina chutney/Hari chutney.

  11. Ritu Tangri

    My mom used to add tamarind to kadhi, if sometimes curd wasn’t there in the home, but never knew this is the Sindhi way of making kadhi. Your video has made it easier to see the consistency of kadhi. Will try it soon as kadhi is otherwise regular in my home , this week it will be Sindhi kadhi not the Punjabi kadhi 🙂
