This kadhi recipe is very different from the usual kadhis we make. The unique thing about this recipe is that there is no use of besan.Kokum, the main ingredient of this recipe gives an amazing flavour to this kadhi.The kadhi tastes nice but more better when chilled. I liked the chilled kadhi more.
