I had sprouted some urad dal which I wanted use for another recipe but due to lack of time I made this interesting recipe that I had hit on the net. This is a simple to make kadhi full of nutrition and taste. I had prepared it to accompany hot steamed rice with papad, it was yummm… Kadhi lovers should give it a try; this is kadhi+dal in one dish.
