I had some Hyderabadi mirchi bhajji home delivered from a nearby restaurant for our evening snack. As usual there were some leftovers and I decided to make something out of it. So here goes a kadhi recipe which turned out yummy as kadhi being my favourite. I enjoyed it with some jeera rice. Please check below a step by step guide with pictures to prepare it.
- 1-2 Mirchi bhajia / batter fried green chili fritters , chopped
- 1/2 cup yoghurt
- 3 cups water
- salt to taste
- 1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
- 1/2 tsp. ginger paste
- 1/4 tsp. asafoetida
- 1 tsp. red chili powder
- 1 tsp. coriander-cumin powder
- 1 tbsp. oil
- 1 sprig curry leaves
- 1/2 tsp. mustard seeds
- 1/2 tsp. cumin seeds
- coriander leaves to garnish
In a bowl, whisk together yoghurt, water, salt, turmeric powder, ginger paste, asafoetida, red chili powder and coriander-cumin powder.
Heat oil in a pan and temper with mustard seeds and cumin seeds. After it stops spluttering, add the yoghurt mix and simmer on a medium flame till it thickens to a desired consistency.
While serving, arrange the chopped mirchi bhajias on it and pour the kadhi over it. Garnish with coriander leaves and relish with plain steamed rice, jeera rice, pulao, plain Biryani or any form of Indian bread.
