Methi Kadhi | Rajasthani Methi Kadhi | Kadhi Recipe

Kadhi (paladya) and saaru (rasam) work well in all seasons. I can never say no to a meal involving either of these 2 dishes. It gives you an instant feeling of warmth. Methi kadhi is one of my go-to dishes if I have methi in my fridge and after a long day of work. It is so quick to make and methi definitely makes it extra comforting.

This is Rajasthani style methi kadhi whereas Punjabi style methi kadhi generally has pakodas in it .

The subtle bitterness of fenugreek is balanced with the sourness of yogurt, to create a dish that is healthy and delicious at the same time.

Methi Kadhi Stepwise:

  • Wash methi very well, finely chop it and keep aside . In a pan or kadhai add 2 tbsp oil and all the spices Fenugreek Seeds, Cumin seeds, Mustard Seeds, Cloves and Asafoetida and let them crackel.
  • Now add methi / fenugreek leaves and cook till it turns soft.
  • In a vessel add Besan, Curd, Red chilli powder, Turmeric and Salt. Mix together add 1 cup of water and whisk well. Pour beaten yogurt/curd mixture and cook well.
  • Turn the heat to low at this stage and allow the kadhi to simmer . Till it is thicken.
  • Pour in a serving bowl and pour the tadka over it. Serve hot with steamed rice, Chappati, Papad and some pickle!
