What is Moongphali Kadhi?

Kadhi recipe is generally a preparation of yogurt and gram flour. However, gram flour is not consumed during fasts and therefore to make fasting kadhi recipe Rajgira flour is used. When fasting kadhi is flavored with peanuts, it becomes moongphali kadhi. Addition of one ingredient takes the kadhi to a distinct level and makes it so delectable. Further during fast the choices are limited and moongphali kadhi is an interesting break from the kadhi recipe or potato recipes generally prepared during fasts.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Moongphali Ki Kadhi recipe

Peanut is a very common ingredient for the upvas recipes. Peanuts recipes for fasts include peanut barfi, peanut chutney and more. Likewise, kadhi recipe is also a common preparation of Indian kitchen. Generally, besan ki kadhi is prepared. Besan ki kadhi is a fortnightly thing at my place too. We all love it. For fasts, I make Rajgira ki kadhi, but this time I thought of some variation and prepared moongphali ki kadhi. Here is all that’s required for moongphali ki kadhi recipe

Yogurt (dahi): For any recipe that involves cooking of yogurt it is very important that yogurt is at the room temperature and is well whisked. For my kadhi recipes, I prefer slightly sour yogurt.

Roasted Peanuts: Roasted peanuts are powdered and added to the moongphali kadhi.

Flour: My kadhi recipe for fasts is the Rajgira kadhi recipe. When I thought of the variation I stuck to the original kadhi recipe and added other ingredients.

Flavoring: Not many ingredients are used for the fasting recipes. Therefore simple and few ingredients have been used to flavor the kadhi recipe which includes tempering of ghee and cumin seeds, green chilies, etc.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
