Methi toor dal kadhi recipe - how to make fenugreek leaves kadhi

Methi kadhi recipe - This is a popular Gujarathi kadhi  prepared with fenugreek leaves, besan and yogurt.  This is an alternative to regular plain kadhi. This methi kadhi  goes well with hot rice or rice khichadi. Besides methi kadhi,  I also make methi thepla, methi dal ambat with fenugreek leaves. Making methi kadhi is very simple. I have been making this methi khadi for years and now sharing with you all.

 Methi toor dal kadhi recipe

1 cup yogurt / curd

1/2 bunch fenugreek leaves, finely chopped
