Palak Kadhi

This is a very simple Kadhi with lots of iron into it. It's very easy to make . Procedure is almost same as Maharashtrian Kadhi or Gujrathi Kadhi. Spinach, that is palak into the Kadhi makes it iron and calcium rich. In some places of Maharashtra it is also called as 'Palakache Alan'


Spinach (palak) - 1 bunch

Curd (Dahi) - 1 cup

Gram flour (Besan) - 2-3 tablespoon

Garlic cloves - 4-5

Red chilli powder - 1 teaspoon

Sugar - 1/2 teaspoon

Salt to taste

Water - 2 cups

For Tempering

Oil - 1 tablespoon

Mustard seeds - 1/2 teaspoon

Cumin seeds - 1/2 teaspoon

Asafetida - 1/4 teaspoon

Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon


Clean and wash spinach neatly. Chop it very finely. Now whisk together curd, gram flour and water. No lumps of gram flour should form. Now add salt and sugar into it and mix well. Take a kadai and make a tempering of given ingredients. Add chopped garlic and saute it till it becomes slightly brown. Add spinach and cook it until done. Then add whisk mixture of curd, red chilli powder. Now allow it to come to a boil. Boil it for 2-3 minute or till the consistency you want. Serve hot with Rice, roti or Bhakri.
