Simple Kadhi

With the onset of summer in Florida you crave for juices, fresh fruits, yogurt, buttermilk, nimbu paani, lassi etc to name a few. You can make kadhi for meals and enjoy it with rice or chapati than the regular dals. Sip the kadhi when it is piping hot or serve it with khichdi and papad. Small children also relish on kadhi because of its sweet and sour taste.
