Spinach Kofta Kadhi

If you thought kadhi is a very simple, everyday dish, this recipe will make you realise just how versatile the seemingly humble kadhi really is. Depending on the spices and additions, like veggies, pakodis or koftas, kadhi can be absolutely simple or awesomely rich too!

Here, we have added spinach dumplings to the kadhi to make it special. Made of spinach and besan perked up with spices, the koftas have a wonderful taste and melt-in-the-mouth texture. They complement the yoghurt curry very well, making this a really satiating recipe.

You can serve it with hot rice and ghee, or yummy buttered rice .
