This recipe was given to me by my Mother-in-law who in turn got it, as a new bride, from my Father-in-law's Kakima (aunt)! As you can see, it has been tried and tested. Serve Doi Maach with piping hot, plain boiled rice.
A thick, creamy North-Indian curry best eaten with rice and a green salad.
Serve this nutritious dish with piping hot plain boiled rice. Versions of this Kadhi are made in both Northern and Western India. Kadhi can also be made without the Pakodis (fritters).
Unlike the Kadhi made in North India, this dish does not include Pakodis (gram flour fritters) and turmeric. This dish must be eaten as it is made because reheating will cause the yogurt in it to curdle.
This tangy dish tastes great with hot Chapatis (Indian flatbread) and Lehsuni Daal (garlic flavored lentils).
Dahi Baingan can be eaten by itself, with plain, fragrant boiled rice and even with Chapatis.
Curd Rice is truly comfort food! Of South Indian origin, it tastes great with just a pickle or chutney and also with a daal (lentils) or meat dish.
