Dahi ki kadi - gram flour dumplings in sour yogurt gravy

Dahi ki kadi is a delicious hyderabadi curry prepared in most of the houses. This curry is made from sour yogurt with added spices. This curry is also called as gulgulon ki kadi because of the gulgule or dumplings present in it. The dumplings are made from gram flour and are deep fried til golden and then added directly into the gravy. This curry is best served with rice.
Its light to eat, easy to cook and tastes simply delicious. What else do you want?? 
So lets start...

Ingredients :

For the gravy :

Yogurt  - 2 cup

Red chili powder - 1 Tsp

Turmeric Powder - 1/2 Tsp

Coriander Powder - 1 Tsp

Coriander leaves  - 1/2 Bunch, chopped

Curry leaves  - 10

Green chilies - 4-5, slit

Gram flour / Besan -  1 Tbsp

Onion  - 1 medium, finely sliced

Salt  - to taste

For dumplings /  Gulgule :

Gram flour - 2 cups

Salt - to taste

Red chili powder - 1/4 Tsp

Turmeric powder - 1/4 Tsp

Ginger-garlic paste - 1/2 Tsp

Soda - a pinch

Oil - for deep frying

For Seasoning / bagaar :

Cumin seeds - 1 Tsp

Mustard seeds - 1/2 Tsp

Dried Red chilies - 5 


Preparing the gravy :

In a bowl add yogurt and beat it nicely with a whisk until it is smooth.
To this add red chili powder, turmeric powder, salt, ginger-garlic paste, coriander seed powder and mix well.
Now take 1 tbsp gram flour in a small bowl, dissolve it in little water to make a smooth paste without lumps.
Add this paste to the beaten yogurt stirring continuously.
Throw in the sliced onions, chopped coriander, curry leaves and green chilies.
Add water according to the desired consistency. [ I'm adding 2 cups of water]
Now keep the mixture on medium flame for 5-7 minutes or until the green chilies turn yellowish.
Remove and keep aside.

Preparing dumplings / Gulgule :

In a bowl take gram flour, add salt, ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, turmeric powder, soda, finely chopped coriander and make into a smooth but thick paste using enough water.
Heat oil in a wok and deep fry the dumplings to golden brown.
Remove and drain the excess oil.
Add the dumplings directly to the cooked Yogurt mixture.

Seasoning / bagaar / tadka :

Heat oil in a pan .
Add cumin seeds, mustard seeds and dried red chilies.
When they start spluttering, remove and add this to the curry.

Serve hot with a bowl of plain rice.

                      Enjoy and Good luck :)
