Rajgira flour is one of the flours used during fasting. Rajgira ki kadhi is a combination of yogurt and Rajgira flour. Since it is prepared during fasts, many spices are not used. It is slightly flavored with cloves and peppercorns. Rajgira flour is commonly used to make poori, parathas or pakoda. These dishes are heavy on the belly. Generally, fasting food is very filling. Vrat ki kadhi is a good break from regular fasting food. It can be served with vrat ke chawal or poori or simply a bowl of it is absolutely comforting.
Rajgira Flour: Rajgira is known as Amaranth in the English language. It is also known as Ramdana. Rajgira is used in different ways. Rajgira flour is the most popular way of using this grain. Rajgira flour is gluten-free and is used a lot during fasts.
Yogurt: I like to use slightly sour yogurt to make vrat ki kadhi. You can also use buttermilk.
Spices: Keeping it simple I have flavored the Rajgira ki Kadhi with cinnamon, cloves, and peppercorns. If you eat red chili during fasts, you can temper the kadhi with red chili powder.
