Palak kadhi recipe - Kadhi is a popular signature dish of Gujarat which is usually served with khichdi, rice, and rotis. You can even have it as a soup. Gujarati traditional thali in restaurant is incomplete without kadhi. For the variation, fenugreek leaves (methi leaves) and spinach are used. I have already posted methi kadhi and Gujarati kadhi recipe. This is a healthy dish with all goodness of yogurt, besan and spinach. This is one of the easiest and simplest dishes that can be made in a jiffy. Even if you skip adding spinach if you don't have it, it will be a delicious simple kadhi that you can serve it with any Gujarati main course. While preparing kadhi, always add salt after boiling it to prevent the yogurt from breaking.
