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...

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.

Back to blogging !!

Hi All,
Hope you are doin great :)

I am back to blogging after a real long time. A lot of events happened in my life, some worth sharing and some not.

March was really busy and I never realized when April started. 

Well April brought lots of celebrations and happiness in my life. 

The most wonderful thing about April was the birth of my NIECE, the very first child of my elder sister. 

Already April was crowded with so many birthdays including mine, now one more added.
Wow..April is full of birthdays ...COOL!!! 

Well she is the most precious birthday gift I ever received. Thanks sweetheart for coming into our lives and thanks Di and Jiju for bringing her into our lives.
                              
I believe every child is an angel and brings a little bit of heaven along with them. And our little angel did not just brought a piece of heaven but also made us realize that we are no longer little babies, we are aunts now. 

OMG! I'm an aunt now, I never realized when did I grew up so fast. 

But I'm enjoying everything, From making her burp to changing her nappies, from helping her bathe to dressing her pretty, I am just loving it, loving being an aunt

Even my youngest sister is behaving a lot mature and is enjoying aunthood. 

Since I'm done with my exams, all birthdays and my niece's naming ceremony I thought of returning to the blog world.

Now, yeah...out of the books, into the kitchen, hurrah!!

Going to try a lot of new recipes and will soon share them with you all.

Hoping to get the same support and love from all of you as before.

Thanks so much.
 - New aunt :)


Luv,
