Vegetable Kadhi. What is vegetable kadhi? Vegetable Kadhi is basically a yogurt vegetable curry or stew. Of course, we need the rest of the must use spices (Drumstick Sambar & Pavakkai Puli Kulambu) for an Indian stew, wouldn't you agree? Right. After all, without spices, how can our Indian stews or curries be taste perfected? Vegetable Kadhi (Navaratan Korma) for your information can also be regarded as Mor Kuzhambu/Curry (Mor Kuzhambu) or even buttermilk curry. Yogurt (Creamy Avocado Yogurt Dip, Mor Rasam, Bengali Yogurt Fish Curry & Cucumber Yogurt Salad) definitely is the central ingredient. Other than that, you can go ahead and use other suitable vegetables (Vegetable Biryani, Mulligatawny Soup, Tari Wale Aloo & Mushroom Soup) or maybe you like to opt for a plain kadhi and if you are asking me, you can adjust the amount of yogurt as per your wish or taste for the burst of natural sourness. Some people may even prefer to add some coconut milk, but that is something subjective to where Vegetable Kadhi originated from (Sodhi). Vegetable Kadhi? Thick, creamy, fab and simply splattering on your tastebuds yogurt vegetable stew.

well every one has ups and down in married life. if someone says that they have perfect life then they are lying. I have same issue I like all the vegetables and he like few, but I make two dishes so I don't have to eat same thing. curry looks awesome going to try soon.ReplyDelete
Your Post made me smile :)ReplyDelete
Its rarity to find perfectness Nava. But to make life happy we adjust & find happiness in what we have.ReplyDelete
Curry looks yumm.& love the simplicity in your dishes.

This is one of my favourite Nava. Your curry looks so perfect. .ReplyDelete
I always feel if me n hubby were so perfect then life would be too boring... I think its that imperfection that's making each day beautiful.. happy weekend!

50 yrs of married life, interesting and awesome. I love moor kuzhambu, yours looks fabulous....ReplyDelete
Moor kuzhambu is slightly different esp the veggies used.ReplyDelete
Don't ask me about making curries I rake my brain on most days.
Yogurt and vegetables is a perfect mix for me...Just mouthwatering....looks delicious!ReplyDelete
khuzhambu looks colourful and temptingReplyDelete
never tried these combination of veg in morkulambu,no nice yaar ,wonderful color.ReplyDelete
I love yogurt in Indian curry dish, creamy and slightly tangy blended with spices,delicious !ReplyDelete
This has always been a comfort meal for me.. Mix of vegetables with the tangy gravy which is apt as gravy for rice & packed with proteins & vitamins from the veggies.. Nicely done Nava !!ReplyDelete
And life becomes more interesting when both are different & complement each other, else it becomes predictable & dull after a point !
you wont believe nava...today i had a talk about this with my friend in our coffee meetup....with so many differences 2 people live to gether may be just like magnets that is the only reason we live...will fight and solve and will love and solve the issues...amazing...this is one wonderful curry that i always fall for...again my hubby never touch this dish...you know as you said "also in up and down" listReplyDelete
Nava, the first paragraph reminded me of this beautiful line that I cam across sometime back, the line goes like this - "n every marriage more than a week old, there are grounds for divorce. The trick is to find, and continue to find, grounds for marriage" - Isn't true?ReplyDelete
About the Moor Kuzhambu, I love the color and the flavor of this simple and subtle gravy! It is a staple at home, we make this at least once a week. But adding eggplant is new to me!!
Looks very delicious and I can have this with rice and pappad by the side!
Love this more kulambuReplyDelete
I had to read twice and confirm that you added yogurt into the cooking process for your soup! interesting and unique.ReplyDelete
Marriage is a funny game, adjustment and compassion r the rules...nothing more helps, isnt it? :) Congrats 2 ur parents, wishing them many many more yrs 2gether... the kulambu is perfect 4 a bowl of rice n some pickle...ReplyDelete
So elegant yoghurt curry!ReplyDelete
This sounds great, love the bright colour.ReplyDelete
Congratulations to your parents for this milestone. Not many people are so lucky! Your curry looks mouth-watering! I love the tang of sour yogurt. Have a lovely weekend!!ReplyDelete
Lovely colour and looks very healthy tooReplyDelete
Hi Nava how have you been...after so long I didn't blog walking yours as usual you never fail to develop stunning recipe just like your fresh and delicious yogurt curry...ReplyDelete
Your post reminded me of my late Mum's tempered yogurt curry sans veggies though. It used to have just a wee bit of tang and i used to love it. I haven't made in in ages and i guess its time i flip through her cook book and get her recipe...ReplyDelete
I think your curry is a beautiful healthy version. thanks for the post :-)

Congrats to ur parents...love ur take on married life,guess it's the small difference,in-differences and give & take that makes it work :)Luckily hubby & I don't have much differences when it comes to food but we do have different opinions in a few other things :)ReplyDelete
