Tips and tricks to get a perfect kadhi:

1. Sour curd works best for the Gujarati kadhi.

2. Chickpea / Besan flour is added to thicken the Kadhi, so adjust the flour as per your preference.

3. You can add turmeric if you like the yellowish hue in your kadhi but I like it plain white.

4. Reduce the water quantity and increase the besan flour if you like Gujarati kadhi to be thick and creamy.

5. You can do the tempering at the beginning or at the end of the cooking process.

6. Adding jaggery or white sugar balances the taste and sourness of curd. Jaggery is a healthier option.

7. Beating the curd and sieve the besan flour are vital steps to get a lump-free, smooth, and creamy texture. 

8. Adding a generous amount of curry leaves gives a nice flavor.

9. Boil the kadhi well on a low flame for a minimum of 10 minutes or until the raw besan flour smell leaves off. 

10. Once the curd besan mixture is heated up, keep stirring it in between to avoid sticking the besan flour at the bottom of the pan.

3. Pour water and mix it well.

4. Heat oil in a saucepan on a medium flame. Put mustard seeds and let it crackle. Add cumin seeds, green chili, red chili, and hing. Fry for a minute and make sure it doesn't burn.

5. Keep the flame on low and pour the besan curd mixture slowly and gradually into the saucepan.
