Makai ni Kadhi / Corn in yogurt gravy

Blogging Marathon # 35 Week 1 Day 2
Theme : Cooking with Corn

While planning for the Marathon first thought that shall make all Indo - Chinese dishes but later thought why not dish out from corners of the world, so for my second day we are travelling to culinary journey of Gujarat. Am preparing very famous dish Kadhi, Kadhi is gravy made from chickpea flour, curd/yogurt, chilies, seasoning with salt and sugar. It is perfect combination of sweet and sour with after note of chillie, is ideal with rice, pulav/pilaf or even with any kind of bread.

This recipe is very easy and quick to make especially when you have a can of corn kernels handy in your pantry. So lets make Makai ni Kadhi
