Like many other dishes, kadhi differs from region to region. This Sindhi Kadhi is a rather special one as it is made using tomatoes. Tomatoes are very low in calories and provide plenty of vitamin A which required for a glowing skin and healthy vision. I assure you that your family will relish this tangy kadhi with a touch of sweetness provided by jaggery.

Healthy as tomatoes are healthy and it taste like a Rasam. It's spicy, so be prepared for a bit of fire or increase the jaggery to cut the spice level.

good idea.....to save besan from getting burnt,(for new cooks) it can be added to the puree itself
