Vrat Ki Kadhi

Vrat Ki Kadhi an easy and simple yogurt based curry made for the fasting period.

Kadhi is a yogurt based curry made with yogurt with besan(chickpea flour added to it). It is tempered with spices likes fenugreek seeds cumin seeds , chilli powder and herbs like curry leaves and coriander leaves.

Vrat Ki Kadhi is made with the flour that Singhara Atta(Chestnut Flour), Rajgira Atta(Amaranth Flour). The curry can be tempered with the spices as per one’s dietary preference during fasting period.  I usually like to keep it simple with curry leaves and green chillies and ginger. I like to have Vrat Ki kadhi with Plain Sama Rice or Sama Rice Pulao. Both are no fuss dishes and can be prepared in jiffy. During fasting when you need to go to work, you can make these quickly and pack for lunch. Since there are no spices used in these recipes these come under Satvik food and are light on stomach.Many times I also love to have it like soup, it is so warm and comforting with the flavor from curry leaves and ginger.

  1. I love the combination of both flour, I make it regularly for my ekadashi fast and add some roasted makhana. Also kadhi looks absolutely delicious.

  2. Love kadhi in whichever way it is made. I usually make using samo but have to try with amaranth or singhada. Looks so delicious. Next Ekadashi, its going to be kadhi with amaranth flour.

  3. Vrat ki kadhi is something new to me and have never made it. Its sounds so simple and easy to make too. In ours, vrat means we don’t take rice, onion, garlic and masala powder. But we eat chappathi, besan flour etc., So every time I read about vrat ki recipes, I learn something new about the traditions in North. Lovely share Swathy.

  4. Beautifully explained recipe, till yet I have never tried vrat special kadi. Loved your detailed recipe and I am bookmarking this recipe and hoping to try it soon. So delicious!

  5. Swaty,
    I love the combination of vrat ke chawal and this kadhi but your idea of having it as a soup is also so perfect for the season! What a mouthwatering post!
