Rajasthani kadhi is a traditional North Indian recipe which is also popularly known as Marwari kadhi in Rajasthan. It is a spicy yogurt based gravy that is full of varied spices and flavors.

Rajasthani kadhi is a tasty and aromatic gravy that comprises some unique combination of flavors which include spicy, sour, and tangy as well. It is such a warm and comforting side dish that goes well with wheat roti, pulkas, parathas, Bajra roti, Jowar roti, and hot steamed basmati rice. Dahi denotes yogurt in Hindi.

Rajasthani kadhi calls for sour curd, besan, and Indian spices as the main ingredient, and also the full-fat sour curd is vital to get a perfect kadhi. The besan indicates a garbanzo/chickpea flour in Hindi that basically helps to thicken the gravy.

In fact, each and every state in India has its own version of kadhi. The Rajasthani version of Marwari kadhi is very hot and spicy and looks mild red in color. It has a strong, and pungent flavor too. You can adjust the chilies as per your required spice level.

Rajasthani kadhi is a simple and straightforward recipe. It is also easy to prepare with minimal effort. If you have extra time, also want to make it even more appetizing, just prepare lentil fritters or pakoras and add to the gravy. The Rajasthani kadhi pakora is so delicious and fulfilling.

The combination of Rajasthani kadhi with rice is typically referred to as Kadhi Chawal which is a traditional food in Rajasthan. This kadhi is a no onion and no garlic recipeIf you have fresh/frozen kachoris in hand, simply crush them and add it to the gravy and serve it as Rajasthani Kadhi Kachori as an appetizer or an evening snack.

As I discussed before, that each state has its own way of preparing kadhi, the Gujarathi version of Gujarati Kadhi is a curd based gravy that has a combination of sweet, sour, and tangy flavor. This version is slightly thin, not very spicy, so gentle, and soothing for the stomach. Gujarathi kadhi has always been our family favorite so we often make this dish at home. Here is the recipe link, Gujarathi Kadhi Recipe

Another version is the Maharashtrian kadhi, which is somewhat sweet due to its addition of sugar/jaggery. This can be prepared with fresh/sour curd too. And Punjabi Kadhi is rich, thick, and creamy plus it has pakoras in it, which makes the dish savory and delicious. The Sindhi Kadhi is a besan based curry that tastes sweet and sour. It is usually cooked either with tamarind extract or kokum, along with tomatoes for a tangy flavor. Additionally, vegetables like okra, potatoes, drumstick are added too. So, the ingredients in most of the kadhi versions are pretty much the same except the spices.

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

4. Whisking curd and sieving besan flour are vital steps to get a lump-free, smooth, and creamy texture.

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