Palak kadhi- Palak Kadhi is a comforting curry made with fresh spinach leaves that is pureed and cooked along with yogurt curry. It is a favourite North Indian everyday dish that is perfect for summers as well as winters. This curry goes very well with rice and roti.
palak kadhi is made with fresh spinach leaves that are cooked first to remove the rawness and then pureed, it is then boiled along with a yoghurt and curd based gravy.
A usual tadka of hing, mustard seeds, cumin seeds and dry red chilli is poured over the kadhi and served hot. This makes it a perfect lunch dish that can be had along with your hot phulkas by the side.
For Rajasthani Version:
Palak kadhi is a popular Rajasthani dish. in Rajasthan, they make it a little runny and sour. I really love that version of kadhi too. if you want to make Rajasthani version
- Add a little more water in curd or use chaach ( buttermilk) to make kadhi.
- Use one-day-old buttermilk for the sourness
- always put salt in the end
