India is a country of festivals, and we certainly celebrate each one with a bit more fervour than usual. No matter how little or large the occasion, food is an essential component of our celebrations, and we always opt to eat something delectable. For Navratri lunches and dinners, you can create the delicious main dish kadhi, which is often made using besan or gramme flour and yoghurt as the primary ingredients. Here is a kadhi variation you may not be familiar with to make your fasting experience tasty!


This Vrat Ki Kadhi is prepared differently than regular kadhi by utilising water chestnut flour, yoghurt, ginger, curry leaves, coriander leaves, and a few more typical spices consumed while fasting. We're sure your loved ones will appreciate it if you serve them this incredibly tasty kadhi recipe for dinner together with kuttu ki puri or samak rice. You can stop eating potatoes now and enjoy this simple meal instead, which you can also make for festivals and special events since people frequently eat them during vrat.
