A wonderful accompaniment for khichdis, the Rajgira ki Kadhi is quite similar to usual kadhi recipes but uses rajgira flour instead of besan. This mouth-watering faraali kadhi uses rock salt instead of sea salt, to make it acceptable on fasting days. Minimal and common ingredients are used, but the outcome is super tasty and satiating too. This no-fuss, no-stress recipe is perfect for fasting days, to provide you with the required nutrients using permissible ingredients.
