1. Quantity of water can be adjusted as per preference.
2. The larger the pieces of vegetables, the more time needed to cook them.
3. In a hurry, the Kadhi can also be made in a pressure cooker, but the taste does defer a bit than the traditional slow-cooking.
4. Adjust seasonings as per preference.
