When some one talks about Kadhi, my mouth starts watering. I simply love this simple & the most yummiest thing in this world. I love to eat it with Rice & ya no spoons. Kadhi chawal tastes awesome when eaten with your hands, licking fingers...oh its simply heaven. My maa makes awesome Kadhi which is even light to your stomach. She makes it really simple at times, i am sharing this amazing recipe with a twist, using boondi instead of pakoras. You should surely try this finger licking recipe...quick easy & light...
