  • Immediately pour in the mango pulp mixture.
  • To this add red chilli powder, ginger powder and required salt.
  • Mix well and allow it to boil for 10 to 12 minutes, stirring in between to avoid any lumps formation.
  • Check the consistency of kadhi and you may add more water if the kadhi is too thick.
  • Turn off the heat when the consistency of the kadhi is thick enough and when the raw smell of the ingredients disappear.
  • Garnish with coriander just before serving.
  • It is eaten specially with aamras and puri. But you can also serve with steamed rice and phulkas.

Notes

1. Overripe mangoes work best for this recipe.
2. Proportions of mango pulp and yoghurt can vary.
3. You can also use buttermilk instead of yoghurt and adjust water accordingly.
4. Adjust sweetness and consistency to your preference.
5. If you do not like your kadhi too sweet, you can include a little raw mango pulp to make it a little sour and balance the sweetness.
6. Another variation could be to substitute red chilli powder with ginger and green chilli paste. In this case avoid dry ginger powder.
7. You may substitute ghee with oil, but traditionally recipe calls for ghee.
